The tough choices and tradeoffs the United States may have to make to find a workable solution in healthcare will be the focus of a free Ethics in Healthcare event that Community Memorial Health System is holding as part of its 2017 Speaker Series. The seminar starts at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 27, at the Museum of Ventura County.
James Hornstein, M.D., CMHS Bioethics Committee Chair, will moderate the latest Ethics in Healthcare event, titled, “How Healthcare Controls Us: Reform Efforts in Uncertain Times.”
In addition to Hornstein, featured speakers will include Gary Wilde, CMHS president and CEO; and Lucien Wulsin, J.D., health policy expert and author of “California at the Crossroads: Choices for Healthcare Reform.” The seminar will address the following topics:
- · Is private insurance becoming unaffordable?
- · Is a single-payer system the solution?
- · Are healthcare costs out of control?
- · Are the health insurance exchanges working?
- · What are your options right now?
