Event Description 

Health Care Reforms: Opportunities and Challenges

Kaiser PermanenteThe debate on health care reform includes questions of the right to health care, access, fairness, sustainability, quality and financial viability. The United States' current health care system is one of the most expensive in the world. How will the most recent health care reform laws affect us as a nation? How will it affect our households? What is the perspective from top-level executives from the leading health care organizations, and what do they view as opportunities and challenges to come?

The School of Economics and Business Administration's next Executive Speaker Series will feature keynote presenter Bernard J. Tyson, CEO of Kaiser Permanente. Tyson will draw upon his experience to discuss the challenges and opportunities that come with health care reform.
