Back by popular demand! BRI-Georgetown is pleased to host in conjunction with Startup Hoyas Med, a well-received talk by Dr. Robert F. Graboyes, of The Mercatus Center at George Mason University. Dr. Graboyes’s lively and educational talk explains how healthcare innovation could save the American healthcare system — and what we can do from a policy perspective.
RSVPs are appreciated. We’re sorry, but due to funding limitations, we will only be able to serve food to Georgetown students.
NOTE: This event takes place in the eastern time zone.
Dr. Robert F. Graboyes of the Mercatus Center, spoke to 36 Georgetown University medical students on healthcare innovation and what needs to be done from a policy perspective to open up markets so that healthcare innovators can decrease costs and increase access for all patients. Specifically, Dr. Graboyes touched upon how the FDA (or any drug approval process), medical education and state laws (such as Certificate of Need) should be reformed. His talk was very well received and there were many questions from the audience.
The event went well, with a greater turn out this year relative to last year when Dr. Graboyes spoke at Georgetown.
The Georgetown medical students were very receptive to Dr. Graboyes’ message of the need to reduce medical regulations and open up markets. In fact one student said she though Dr. Graboyes “had many excellent ideas.”
