Challenges of Health Care — Perspectives on the Future

As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, doctors’ understanding of life sciences and [...]human health continues to advance at an astonishing rate. Yet affordable, quality health care remains an elusive goal for many in the United States. To that end, this year’s President’s Panel, hosted by President Robert A. Brown, addresses “Challenges of Health Care — Perspectives on Our Future.” Moderated by Karen Antman, School of Medicine dean and Medical Campus provost, the panel features four national experts: George Annas, a BU William Fairfield Warren Distinguished Professor and chair of the School of Public Health’s Department of Health Law, Bioethics & Human Rights; BU trustee Cleve Killingsworth, Jr., retired president of Massachusetts Blue Cross Blue Shield; Thomas Lee, CEO of Partners Community HealthCare; and Kate Walsh, president and CEO of Boston Medical Center.

Hosted by the Office of the President on October 30, 2010.
