In this book, Sally Satel identifies and critiques the burgeoning phenomenon of "politically correct" medicine, which seeks to remedy social oppression by ensuring the equitable distribution of public health. She argues that incorporating social justice into the mission of medicine diverts attention and resources from the effort to prevent and combat disease for everyone, regardless of race or sex.

Sally Satel, M.D., is a resident scholar at AEI.
