American Health Care: What's Left After COVID-19?

Registration ends 1 hour before program starts

Join us for a virtual medical panel discussion about whether the COVID-19 crisis will end up trimming some of the waste out of America's health-care system.

For this 10th Annual Lundberg Institute Lecture, previous TLI lecturers will join Dr. George Lundberg in a reprise of the health-care topics covered in the last 10 years, including medical treatment of the dying, Accountable Care Organizations, Medicare for All, Covered California as a national model, increasing the quality of health care and patient safety, decreasing diagnostic and treatment errors, blending public health with clinical medicine, and removing "business ethics" as a model for health-care administration. The TLI panel will also compare the health-care platforms of the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates.
