Global Perspective on U.S. Health Care
Dec , 6, 7:00 am - 8:45 am
Pinery at the Hill
It’s often said that the US has the best health care system in the world, but is that true? How do we compare to other developed nations in health care, and at what cost? If we’re not where we think we are, where are we failing? What’s the path forward?
The United States spends more on health care (17.5% of gross domestic product) than we do on education (5.4%) and more than we spend on the military (4.7%). This amounted to 3.1 trillion in 2014. The future economic and social viability of our country is at stake.
The more we spend on health care, the less money we have to invest in the future of the country (via educating the workers of tomorrow), the less we have for R&D for innovation and global competitiveness, and the less we have to defend ourselves (military budgets).
Join us on December 6th as we learn more from Dr. Tatiana Bailey!
