How to Rein in Medical Costs, Right Now

George Lundberg, Editor-at-Large, MedPage Today; Editor-in-Chief, Cancer Commons

Monday Night Philosophy explores the ideas underlying the American health-care system, whose costs, compared to all other countries’, are out of control. Many people argue that our quality and safety of care and clinical outcomes do not justify these costs. Lundberg will describe the whats, the whys and the what-to-dos, followed by a Socratic dialogue with Hammond and an open discussion with the audience.
