This is a somewhat unusual event that may interest you. A venture
capitalist (!) is worried that the "real" health policy issues driving the
structure of health care and health care costs are not getting enough
discussion. So, he has invited a number of speakers from big paharma,
business, insurance, health care and academia to gather to have
minimally-structured panel discussions and debates. He appears not to have
an ax to grind and is not charging for admission. Bob Wheeler (Assistant
Professor of Medicine and CMO of BlueCross BlueShield of Vermont) and I
will be on the panels. If you want to attend, just send an email to Adam
Mikkelson ([log in to unmask]).
