The Lown Institute is a think tank generating bold ideas for a just and caring system for health. more

The system must incentivize healing over profiteering.

Patients should get all the care they need, and none that they do not.

Good health should transcend neighborhood, income, and background.

Compassion and humility are central to the practice of healing.
