Public lecture: "Looking Overseas for the 'Healing of America'" - Film Screening and Dinner Discussion(More about event)
The U.S. spends more money on health care than any other nation, but performs below other wealthy countries in matters of cost, quality, and choice. How could this be?
Reporter, documentary film correspondent, and author T.R. Reid '66 visited hospitals and doctors' offices all around the world searching for answers. His round-the-world reporting led to a best-selling book, "The Healing of America," as well as two PBS Frontline documentaries that followed him to 6 countries. Join Reid as he discusses his perspectives on foreign healthcare systems, the moral underpinnings of universal health care, health disparities across the United States, and the way forward for U.S. health care reform. (***Screening and discussion is open to the public; RSVP required for dinner - students only.***)
