Program Description

From Presidential addresses to town hall meetings, front page headlines to position statements posted in doctors' offices, health care reform is one of the critical issues currently facing American society. The proposed reforms address complex issues and competing interests such as patient access to health insurance coverage and health care services, the cost of health care and potential payment sources, and the quality of health care services delivered. Join us for a public program on this hotly debated issue where the speakers will examine the need for reform, proposed legislative solutions, and various responses to those proposals.
