Overview

Healthcare in a Civil Society is an annual forum that seeks to engage leaders of varying perspectives in a civil conversation that focuses on the healthcare issues that are important to our community devoid of the rhetoric that often undermines these conversations in the media.

This year's event will focus on the third of what Donald Berwick referred to as healthcare's Triple Aim: to reduce the costs of health care.  Presenters will explore this topic focusing on the impact healthcare costs have on government, private insurance, employers, health care providers and patients.  The event will include a breakout session for audience participation and engagement and a panel discussion featuring leaders from the various sectors to further the conversation.
