To the Editor: Dr. Dickman and his colleagues have hit the nail squarely on the head (Oct. 22 issue).* A universal, comprehensive, publicly administered national health program is the only way simultaneously to extend access, control costs, and reclaim medicine from the bureaucrats. Numerous polls conducted over the past 20 years have shown that the American people want such a program, and 67 percent of Massachusetts voters favored a national health program in a referendum last year. We and the 700 other members of Physicians for a National Health Program invite our colleagues to join in advocating this much-needed reform.
