Ideas for ya

Have you looked at healthcare management? what about outcomes research? your economics background would be highly relevant. you'd need at least a masters degree to break into these fields. look for masters programs at public health schools.
if your heart is set on med school, you can get there by doing well on all your pre-med requirements (not an insignificant undertaking), scoring high on the MCAT, volunteering up a storm, and developing relationships with potential recommenders in the field.
another option is optometry, which can be just as lucrative as medicine if you go into private practice

Agreed about corporate

Masters, they would not like it if a real leader said hey, put the fork down. It might cause McDonalds to lose some points on NASDAQ. But it would do a helluva lot for the so-called "Health Care Crisis". The crisis is our fat ass not paperwork shuffle. Look at Obama, he is the perfect person to deliver this message. He is fit, lean and looks very healthy. Instead of saying "my answer to the healthcare crisis involves many things INCLUDING programs that will assist all Americans to get healthy" he says "single payer mumbo jumbo...zzzzzzz" just like other politicians. Bush also is fanatic about exercise but he has never once mentioned, at least I have never heard, that the solution to healthcare crisis is tied to diet and exercise
