An Open Dialogue on the Role of Health Care Providers

12:00 - 1:00 PM EST

The American health care system is broken and requires fundamental change. Change that ensures that all Americans have affordable health coverage, rather than living with the financial and emotional insecurity of being uninsured. Change that controls escalating health care costs that burden American families and American businesses. Change that ensures that patients maintain their choice of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers. And change that makes prevention, wellness, and health promotion a centerpiece of the American health care system.

Doctors struggle daily with our broken health care system. They know, better than anyone else, how the problems with coverage, quality, autonomy, and inefficiency leave patients with higher costs and lower-quality care.

We hope you will join us as the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine hosts the Center for American Progress in a discussion with John Podesta that will explore the challenges the current health care system poses for health professionals, patients, and policymakers, and how doctors can use their unique insight and real-life experiences to steer the nation towards a solution.
