Presented by the American Medical Association and the National Broadcasting Company, Medicine USA dramatized health issues in the United States. The show started in 1952 and ran for six episodes followed by six more episodes in 1953.
Medicine USA presented a radio play dramatizing the symptoms and treatment of the issue for the week. The narrator, Charles Laughton in 1952 and Ben Grauer in 1953, added facts about the health issue and helped move the story along. The show ends on a hopeful note to illustrate that people can get better or make a change for the better.
At the end of the radio show, Dr. W.W. Bower, Director of the Bureau of Health Education for the AMA, discusses the problem and treatment from the medical point of view. Dr. Bower also supervised the script to make sure that the script was factually correct.
