Dr. Paul Zeitz, author of Waging Justice: A Doctor’s Journey to Speak Truth and Be Bold, has spent the past 30 years working in public health and global development projects in over 40 countries. His memoir includes the vision of what healthcare should look like, interwoven with his personal search for comfort and meaning with a rallying cry for those who desire to make the world a better place.
Zeitz is truly a public-health warrior. He brings personal experience to the policymaking arena, and his thoughtful book looks at health from a very different perspective, one that increasingly demands to be heard.
