Health Care Reform

December 1, 2009

While the debate on health care reform is taken up in the Senate this week, many Americans are still unsure about what kind of reform is needed, or how the proposed legislation might affect them. On tonight's Community Conversation, we'll talk about the physician's role in health care reform, whether or now the single-payer system is still an option, and how the legislation might affect you.

Guests: 
Dr. David Svahn, Retired Attending Physician at Bassett Healthcare, Cooperstown and Clinical Professor at Decker School of Nursing, Binghamton University
Rebecca Elgie, co-chair of Single Payer NY
Kosali Simon, Associate Professor in the department of Policy Analysis and Management at Cornell University and part of the Sloan Program at Cornell
