National Health Care Reform: Policy Options and Imperatives

Healthcare expenditures have surpassed $2 trillion in the United States. Our health care system leads the world in advanced medical technologies that cure disease, yet more than 40 million Americans remain uninsured. The country is poised for change. This conference will bring together some of the nation's foremost health economists to explore options for controlling spiraling health care costs and improving access to high-quality health care. The goal is to provide objective information and foster critical debate that will shape future health care policy.
