On October 29, the Center for Politics is hosting a forum titled “The Politics of Health Care Reform” to discuss health care reforms proposed by the top candidates from both parties. The forum will be held at 4:00 p.m. in the Dome Room of the Rotunda.
Each year, the Center for Politics showcases vital works by authors in the “American Political Challenges” book series. In addition to promoting these publications, the Center hosts related events.
The forum was inspired by a recent book, “Health Care Half Truths: Too Many Myths, Not Enough Reality,” authored by U.Va. Provost and former Dean of the School of Medicine, Arthur “Tim” Garson, Jr., M.D., M.P.H. and Assistant Professor of Medical Education, Carolyn Engelhard, M.P.A. Their book is a part of the Center for Politics’ “American Political Challenges” book series.
Wyatt Andrews, CBS News national correspondent, will moderate the panel discussion. The expert panel includes: Robert Moffit, Ph.D. of The Heritage Foundation, Irwin Redlener, M.D. of The Children’s Health Fund and Columbia University, Stephen Schoenbaum, M.D., M.P.H. of The Commonwealth Fund and Grace-Marie Turner of The Galen Institute.
Provost Garson and Professor Engelhard will also join the panelists, and a large portion of the event will be reserved for Q & A.
The event is free and open to the public, although registration is required. More information can be found at: www.centerforpolitics.org/programs/healthcare.
