"A Bold New World for Us and Our Grandchildren - Coming Changes in Health Care"

Fifty years ago, our health care system was really a medical care system, and innovation meant new drugs, devices, and procedures to help the sick. Today, our health care system has much broader goals, and innovation now includes using genomics, digital health, healthy behaviors, and social media to keep people healthy. How health care has changed, how the health care system has adapted, and how to pay for it all is the focus of this distinguished panel of past and present leaders of the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics, Penn’s 50-year-old health care policy institute, and the School of Nursing’s Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research.

We'll have lots of time for audience interaction and conversation. Registration is requested but not required. Luncheon to follow.
