Visiting Author Michael Fine @ Hall

Join us as we welcome Dr. Michael Fine who will read from his newly released book: On Medicine as Colonialism. This book is a reframing of the health care debate in the US. It is a strident meticulously researched expose that shows how corporate America uses Medicare and Medicaid to extract resources from communities, as it rethinks the process of colonialism in a globalized world. It has been called “a sobering diatribe on health care in America”, driven by “outrage at what has been wrought” – but also provides “a realistic perspective on achieving health equity.”

Dr. Fine is the author of Health Care Revolt (2018), The Nature of Health (Radcliffe Press, 2007), Rhode Island Stories (Stillwater River Press, 2021), The Bull and Other Stories (Stillwater River Press, November 2020) the IPNE 2021 Literary Fiction Book of the Year, and Abundance (PM Press, 2019). He is the former Director of the Rhode Island Department of Health, a family physician, speaker, commentator, podcaster, community organizer, and activist.
