Proposals to Policy: A National Conversation on Health Care Reform

Posted by on October 27, 2008

By November 5, American voters will have chosen a political direction that will have profound impact on their lives, the economy and the global position of the nation.

While “change” is the presidential candidates’ mantra in this campaign season, the candidates have embraced a call to fix the unsustainable US Healthcare system.  It’s clear that the November election will inevitably present a turning point in the American way of getting and paying for healthcare.

The scope and impact of that reform remains uncertain, and many opinion leaders and decision-makers want more information about the political, social and economic realities any reform plan will face on the path to become law.  Equally uncertain is the response of the Congress, given the change in leadership and additional shifts in power coming in the November elections.

PricewaterhouseCoopers and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia will sponsor a major post-election event on Thursday, November 20th, to address the implications of health care reform in the president-elect’s administration, starting with a local panel discussion followed by a national broadcast from the National Press Club in Washington D.C.

Proposals to Policy: A National Conversation on Health Care Reform will begin at 11:15am at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Stokes Auditorium, at 34th Street below Spruce Street in West Philadelphia.   The panel will be moderated by Susan Dentzer, Editor-in-Chief of Health Affairs, the nation’s leading journal of health policy, and an on-air analyst on health issues with The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer on PBS.
