From the WOSU:

All-inclusive vacations might feature a stay in a luxury hotel, gourmet meals, and in some cases, a hip replacement. Companies that specialize in medical tourism help patients in the U.S. find health care opportunities abroad, often at greatly reduced costs. This hour, we’ll talk about why a million Americans each year travel overseas for medical care and the legal and ethical gray areas of this growing trend.

Guests:

  • Glenn Cohen, professor of law and bioethics at Harvard, author of “Patients with Passports: Medical Tourism, Law and Ethics”
  • Josef Woodman, CEO of Patients Beyond Borders
