#OnThisDay 77 years ago, Allied Forces stormed the beaches of #Normandy and secured a critical victory that turned the tide of #WWII. It wasn't easy and it came at a cost—on D-Day alone, 4,414 Allied troops were confirmed dead, with more than 9,000 wounded or missing. Today, we remember their bravery and sacrifice.

It illuminates the complex and intimidating world of medicine for readers, and in the end offers a clear plan to save American healthcare.
