Health care is an extremely important topic and of course, the Library is here to help. Under our Tools and Research tab, a handy sheet filled with links has been created to help inform you about the ongoing health care reform debate. This American Life has put together a series explaining how the health care system works and why costs only keep going up in part one and takes a deeper look into the health insurance industry in part two.
