Howard Markel, M.D., Ph.D.

A new compilation of the top healthcare quotes of 2015, prepared by Forbes, includes on by Howard Markel, M.D., Ph.D., director of the U-M Center for the History of Medicine and an IHPI member. 

Markel's quote comes from his appearance in "The Emperor of All Maladies", a PBS documentary on cancer. 

“If you could find one great theme in cancer over the last 100 years – it’s the men and women who have said ‘I’m not taking this anymore – I’m going to try something else.’  And that’s how science and medicine are advanced – by people refusing to take the status quo.”
