Physicians from across the political spectrum deal every day with America's broken health-care system. Regardless of their political beliefs, doctors are deeply concerned-both for their patients, and because our system often hurts doctors just as much as patients. Health care problems are as complex as they are abundant but few voices are offering anything that focuses on the deeper, underlying issues. Two seasoned physicians, Dr. Len Saputo, founder of the Health Medicine Forum and Health Medicine Center and Dr. Lonnie Bristow, former national president of the American Medical Association, will share a vision for progressive change, inspired not only by experience, but by a deep awareness that we must build community in a meaningfully way if we are to heal the broken health care system.
Among the issues the two will tackle and then open up for questions are:
- The health care industry, especially pharmaceuticals, hospitals and insurers
- The medical profession paradigm change in medical and medical education
- The politics of health care reform, including legislation
Health care problems are as complex as they are abundant and few voices are offering information that focuses on the deeper underlying cultural issues.
