Reforming Health Care: What Can We Expect

David Mechanic and Joel Cantor will discuss the nation's ailing health care system and the problems involved in fixing it - in Washington and in Trenton. The forum will be on Tuesday, January 27, 2009, 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM at the United Methodist Church, 47 North Main Street, Milltown, NJ. Topics of discussion will include how reforms could affect: access to primary care, treating chronic disease, Medicare and Medicaid (coverage, premiums, and co-payments) and obtaining insurance.

Dr. David Mechanic is Director of the Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research (IHHCPAR) at Rutgers University and Dr. Joel Cantor is Director of the Center for State Health Policy at the Institute.

A question and answer session will be held at the conclusion of their presentations, followed by a reception.
