Dr. Mike Magee, M.D.

Mike Magee, M.D., is a physician, speaker and author known for his leadership in connecting health and environmental issues, corporate social responsibility and championing a holistic vision for health system reform in the U.S.

He is the author of eight books, including "Health Politics: Power, Populism and Health" and "Home-Centered Health Care: The Populist transformation of the American Health Care System."

In his role as host of Health Politics, Dr. Magee articulated a new vision of health populism-advocating a system in which "the people and the people caring for the people" have equal responsibilities and are vested together in health outcomes.  Dr. Magee continues to share his views on these topics at HealthCommentary.org.
