The School of Law will host a lecture with Elisabeth Rosenthal, an award-winning journalist, published author and former health care professional, Monday, March 6, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the School of Law Moot Courtroom.
Her lecture, “An American Sickness: How Healthcare became Big Business and How You Can Take it Back,” will address one of the underlying flaws in the American health care system: the sizable price tag.
In the last quarter century, American health care has become a big business, leading to expenses for procedures and drugs that are higher than in any other developed country. Rosenthal will outline how the United States came to have its high-priced health care system and what can be done to make it work for both patients and providers.
The event is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception with food and drinks.
