Revolutionizing Health Care

Health care is one of the top domestic consumer issues facing Americans. Every state legislature is considering some form of health care reform, and it's a main talking point on the presidential campaign trail. The central question to be discussed is: how can we make quality health care affordable for everyone? Hundreds of thousands of health care professionals are qualified to care for more than 80 percent of patients who are not in critical condition - but these professionals are unable to help on a scale that would mark true reform. Why? Because our system relies on high-cost doctors as gatekeepers, underutilizing lower cost professionals, such as advanced nurses, PAs, pharmacists, midwives and other qualified care givers. Panelists will discuss ways of reforming the system, as well as how a spiritual component is missing from the health care needs of many.
