As the healthcare debate rages on in Washington, it’s difficult to decipher the confusing and sometimes conflicting messages about healthcare reform and what it means for the future.
“Fact and Fiction in Healthcare Reform” is the title of a presentation by national speaker Theodore Marmor, PhD, professor emeritus of public policy, management, and political science in the Yale University School of Management.
Professor Marmor will help separate fact from fiction based on more than four decades of research he has invested in the areas of American medical care arrangements, policy, politics and law. NEWS MEDIA ARE INVITED.
“This is a unique opportunity to hear from a national expert on healthcare reform,” says Jim Sheets, Administrator of LDS Hospital. “We hope anyone who’s interested in this ever changing healthcare environment will attend.”
The presentation is sponsored by LDS Hospital and the Yale Club of Utah.
