Be the Change voices a quest for a reborn and re-humanized health care system - one that honors the values of individuality and healing relationships along with the life-saving technologies we have at our disposal. A new kind of truly healing hospital should be in our future, as well as a new kind of medical school to educate doctors in a way that incorporates effective complementary therapies and includes a more diverse team of healing professionals; and a new kind of payment system from which we expect a high degree of personal responsibility from every party, and offers a high degree of autonomy in return. Be the Change is a must-read for every American who wants to be healthier and receive optimal care in a truly functioning health care system, instead of continuing to flounder in our current system based on illness.

About the Author:

Dr. Jane Murray is a family physician with a unique view on how our health care system could be. Having had experience in medicine for over 3 decades as a primary care physician, educator, administrator, national speaker, founder of a holistic healing center, patient, employer and family caregiver, her views on humanizing and broadening our health care system stem from integrating all these experiences and perspectives.

Review:

Drawing on her experiences as a holistic family physician, educator, administrator and mid-life woman, Dr. Murray brings a fresh view to the debate about health care reform. Her message is one of critique-- as well as inspiring us to learn the 'Dance of Change'. Thank you, Dr. Murray, for showing us the way to a healing- oriented and equitable system of care for ourselves and our families. -- --Harriet Lerner, PhD, author of Dance of Anger and many others

What compelling reading with real innovations for revolutionizing health care. Your vision of healing hospitals is inspired count me in! Congratulations on pulling all this together in a single volume, and for the courage that underlies it. --Wyatt Townley, author of Yoganetics and Breathing Lessons

This book is a tour-de-force combining a wealth of personal experiences, relevant patient stories and clinical observations all in the context of what you rightly call the long-standing crisis of health care in this country. You have drawn this all together in a lucid manner, in a pleasant straightforward style, firmly rooted in pertinent statistics and data. I was also struck by the recurring theme of what the environment for health care should look and feel like. We are enveloped in harsh and un-human places. Your own clinic exemplifies how a healing center can be calm, friendly and even serene. In trying to define what you have accomplished with this book, the term I came up with is Visionary Realism . Congratulations! - --Fred Whitehead, author and philosopher
