A Healthy Future: Lessons from the Frontlines of a Crisis walks us wave by wave through the ways in which COVID revealed the ongoing problems in health care and social programs in Canada. It then points out important lessons we can learn from the pandemic experience. These ideas are richly illustrated with stories of Saskatchewan patients and Ryan's observations from the halls of legislature and hospital. This book will be of interest anyone who cares about the future of health and health care in Canada.
