Please join us for a discussion on the value of free markets, and how these concepts apply (or don’t apply) to the Affordable Care Act.
POST-EVENT REPORT: On December 12, 2014, Dr. Richard Vedder spoke to 15 students at the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Topics included the value of free markets, and how these concepts apply (or don’t apply) to the Affordable Care Act.
Because medical school does not provide a business education, this talk was very beneficial for students because it provided scope outside of medicine and broadened students’ perspectives into a field that they do not typically address.
Dr. Richard Vedder is very well respected in the academic world, and his presentation was interesting and provided a perspective that medical students are not often exposed to. His knowledge of the topic was incredibly relevant, and he was engaging and entertaining.
