National Issues Forum: Health Care—How Can We Reduce Costs and Still Get the Care We Need?

November 28 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Americans worry about the high cost of health care. Personally, many of us fear that we are on medical catastrophe from bankruptcy. On a national level, spending on health care exceeds spending for defense and threatens our country’s solvency. Deliberative forums on this difficult subject will challenge participants to carefully weigh the trade-offs involved in achieving those things they most care about: good health, ability to pay their bills, personal freedom, and a nation that can meet its citizens’ needs.

This forum will discuss this national issue and various courses of action that can be taken to alleviate the problem. All participants must remain respectful and courteous of others’ opinions and ideas. The discussion will be led by trained professional Tracy Rogers-Tryba.

The forum is entirely free and required no registration to attend. Below are materials and literature about this issue that will be used during the forum. You do not need to read these materials prior to the event, but are welcome to do so if it is helpful.
