The Painful Pursuit of Health Reform as Parodied in Political Cartoons


Theodore M. Brown, PhD, Professor of History, Public Health Sciences, and Medical Humanities, U of R

Susan Ladwig, MPH, Senior Research and Quality Improvement Coordinator, CEHPC, URMC

This presentation brings together two American political traditions - editorial cartooning as a medium for trenchant contemporary commentary and the long-standing effort to achieve universal national health reform. As early as the nineteenth century, caricatures and cartoons parodied the leading personalities and institutions in American health politics. This richly illustrated discussion focuses on the struggle to enact incremental national health reform, including the Affordable Care Act of 2010, as portrayed by popular editorial cartoonists.
