Baker Institute – National Health Care Reform: Strategies for Slowing Cost Growth

Nov 08, 2019 - November 8, 2019
Rice University's Baker Institute , Rice University - Houston

Event Description:

The Baker Institute Center for Health and Biosciences  will be hosting its seventh biennial conference on health care reform.

Four leading health economists will discuss  strategies for slowing health care cost growth, while improving access to high-quality health care in the U.S.

According to the Baker Institute  Program Announcement:

“Leading Democratic presidential candidates are proposing dramatic changes to federal and private health insurance coverage for 2021 and beyond. Yet the discussion lacks understanding of why health care has become so expensive, despite the fact that many researchers argue that as much as one-third of U.S. spending on health care is wasteful.”

Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Follow @BakerCHB on Twitter, and join the conversation online with #BakerHealth.
