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

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 or changing it more fundamentally.

For this 10th Annual Lundberg Institute Lecture, previous TLI lecturers will join Dr. George Lundberg in a reprise of some of the health-care topics covered in the last 10 years, including medical treatment of the dying, Medicare for All, improving the quality of health care and patient safety, decreasing diagnostic and treatment errors, and removing "business ethics" as a model for health-care management. The TLI panel will also compare the health-care platforms of the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates.
