Dr. Reginald Clark is a scholar and activist who believes a good health care policy should provide All citizens with access to Quality Health Care. He is an author, education researcher, and part time lecturer in Child and Family Studies at California State University, Los Angeles. Dr. Clark is working on a book, tentatively titled: "Shooting Ourselves in Both Feet: How Our Public Policies Fail Most Families and Children." This book will discuss how American families and children are being adversely affected by policies and programs established by government agencies, often in collaboration with health care corporations, education corporations, housing finance corporations, prison-industrial complex corporations, media corporations, and other institutions. He expects to complete this book for publication before the end of 2013.

He also serves as co-chair of the Education Program Committee for Labor United for Universal Health Care, a coalition of over 50 unions and labor-allied organizations, as well as individual activists whose mission is to establish a sustainable, secure, and just healthcare system through education, mobilization, and advocacy within the Labor Movement and beyond. He can be reached at drregclark@msn.com.
