Marty Makary - The Price We Pay: What Broke American Health Care--And How to Fix It

Upcoming Event
Saturday, September 14, 2019 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

After interviewing a wide range of patients, doctors, business leaders, and insurance brokers across the country, Makary, a surgeon and professor of health policy at Johns Hopkins, gives a damning, but ultimately hopeful, assessment of the state of health care in America today. Citing systemic overtesting, overdiagnosing, and overtreatment, as well as rampant price-gouging and elusive money games, he shows why health care costs continue to rise. But he also reports that many states have passed price transparency legislation and that an increasing number of physicians are returning to an altruistic model of medicine that focuses on serving communities, not on profits.
