Challenges & Solutions in Single Payer Health Systems: Trouble in Paradise?
6:15-7:45pm, Haldeman 031
Healthcare reform has been an ongoing international phenomenon for decades. Single-payer health systems may provide care and coverage to all but at what cost? Come learn from healthcare reform experts and hear their perspective on the costs, benefits and challenges in crafting health policies and systems which meet the needs of their citizens.
The event is open to any enrolled undergraduate, graduate, medical, business or engineering students. (Not accepting additional registrations.)
Format: Opening remarks from TDI health policy expert, David Goodman, MD, MS. Each speaker will provide a brief overview of a current challenge in their country's healthcare reform process. Following the presentations, each expert will be placed at a table for a more in-depth discussion with a group of students. Speakers will spend 20 minutes at each table, when the bell sounds they will switch tables. Attendees will have the opportunity to meaningfully interact with two-three of the experts in attendance.
