Hosted by: Mercatus Center
As healthcare costs continue to rise across the nation, there is growing concern that the number of people without access to affordable care may rise. Unfortunately, while everyone agrees a problem exists, few agree on a solution.
This course will provide policymakers with a framework for understanding the rules and incentives of the current health care system and how that system might be changed to address the problems of cost, access and coverage. Dr. Don King of the Mercatus Center will provide an understanding of how health care is both alike and unlike from other goods and services, and how that impacts the market. Professor Margaret Potter from the University of Pittsburgh will detail Pennsylvania’s public health infrastructure and the challenges faced within the state.
Capital Campus Pennsylvania is pleased to provide a look at some of the overarching questions of the debate and how Pennsylvania fits into the bigger picture.
