When: December 13,[masked]:00 PM
Healthcare is currently a hot, and a controversial, topic in the U.S. How are other countries addressing this issue, and can any lessons be applied to the U.S.?
One of our members, Bruce, a neurologist, has agreed to lead the discussion. He recommends the following book (which you are invited, but not required, to read): The Healing of America
, by T.R. Reid.
If you know of other resources on healthcare around the world and in the U.S. please post them on this site.
If you have had healthcare experiences in other countries, or have insights into the U.S. healthcare system, please come and share your perceptions.As always...
All views and political orientations are welcome.
We welcome beginners and policy wonks alike. Feel free to join the discussion or just to listen and learn.
Attendance is limited to 14 max as we are meeting in an eatery where it is not possible to reserve space.
If you sign up and change your mind, please change your reply so that someone else may attend.
Meetup to last 1.5 hours (until 5:30 PM) although, of course, people are welcome to continue beyond that point.
Looking forward to another stimulating discussion!
