ATLAS Summit 2016 @ Freedom Fest: What Insurance Is and Isn’t—Getting Medical Costs Under Control

Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas NV 3667 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV, United States

Dr. Beth Haynes, BRI executive director, delivers a talk at ATLAS Summit 2016 @ Freedom Fest: What Insurance Is and Isn't—Getting Medical Costs Under Control.

There is much talk about how to control medical costs. Medical inflation continues to outpace general inflation. Why this is happening has much to do with the fact that what is called "health insurance" really isn't insurance. We argue that coerced wealth distribution is immoral, but this argument does not resonate with everyone. Being abel to also argue the economic aspects of healthcare can strengthen your ability to make the case for freedom in medical care. Come learn about the nature of insurance, what it is and isn't, why current health policy is doomed to fail, and what better alternatives exist.

ATLAS Summit 2016 @ Freedom Fest: Engaging Our Future Physicians

Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas NV 3667 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV, United States

Dr. Beth Haynes, BRI executive director, delivered a talk at ATLAS Summit 2016 @ Freedom Fest: Engaging Our Future Physicians.

It is important that we undertake the task of engaging our future physicians. What are they learning about health policy? Given the state of higher education today, it's no surprise that health policy instruction at medical schools is government-centric. But what is surprising is how little formal policy instruction students receive, which presents a great opportunity to interject the voice of reason into the conversation. Benjamin Rush Institute is doing exactly that. In just the fall semester of 2016, we reached 1300 medical student5s. Come hear how we are presenting the ideas of individual rights and limited government in a way that even liberal medical students are wiling to consider these alternatives.

ATLAS Summit 2016 @ Freedom Fest: What About the Poor? How to Win the Healthcare Debate Without Selling Your Soul

Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas NV 3667 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV, United States

Dr. Beth Haynes, BRI executive director delivered a talk at the 2016 ATLAS Summit @ Freedom Fest, What About the Poor? How to Win the Debate Without Selling Your Soul.

In order to engage those who are skeptical but potentially persuadable to free market ideas, we need to answer concerns about what happens to society's most disadvantaged in a powerful, truthful and compelling way. This is a major concern of young people, who frequently have a strong desire to help others, but who are typically economically ignorant and think with their hearts. In order to reach them we need to address their concerns without compromising on our fundamental principles. Come learn what tactics are working with students and are applicable to a much broader audience.

Day of Solidarity: Bringing awareness to the physician and medical student suicide epidemic

Imagine your excitement as a parent getting ready to attend your child's graduation from medical school. Instead, you attend his funeral--yet another medical student suicide victim.And statistics show no improvement even when a medical student becomes a doctor.

"Medical student and physician suicide is an epidemic. It is estimated that 400 doctors die by suicide in the United States each year. That's the equivalent of an entire medical school gone! The second leading cause of death among medical students is suicide--a well-known occupational hazard in medicine. Yet no medical organization is tracking these suicides. Why? And how can we solve a problem when it's hidden from us?"

Lacey Kohlmoos, an Online Organizing Strategist at Care2 Petitions and wife of a 4th year medical student, is championing National Day of Solidarity to Prevent Physician Suicide in Philadelphia on Saturday, August 20th to bring awareness to this dire situation.

The more awareness we raise, the more we can speak with one voice--a voice of solidarity--to find the root causes of physician and medical student suicide, and promote solutions to turn the tide.

Fulfilling a life's passion to care for others shouldn't mean personal suffering--or worse.
