Hofstra University will host a two-day conference on Thursday and Friday, March 11-12, 2010: “New Directions in American Health Care: Innovations From Home and Abroad.”  The goal of the conference is twofold: 1) to facilitate discussion from an interdisciplinary perspective, a year into the new presidential administration, around transferable, just solutions to America’s health coverage crisis; and 2) to help set a research and policy agenda to broaden social justice by ameliorating critical dilemmas in coverage, cost and quality of health care. Researchers and scholars from a variety of disciplines are invited to submit 400-600 word summaries of their papers for consideration for presentation at one of the following sessions: Lessons from the states and localities, Lessons from abroad, Historical perspectives on U.S. reform efforts, Legal and ethical issues in American health insurance, Quality of care and health coverage innovation, Socioeconomic disparities and health coverage innovation, Special issues in suburban health care and coverage, or Meeting the challenges of an aging population.
