BRI Haynes Beth Executive DirectorPlease join us for a FREE lunch lecture, featuring Dr. Beth Haynes, executive director of Benjamin Rush Institute. This is an opportunity for students to learn the role of government in American medicine throughout history, and what brought us to this juncture.

In addition, students will learn about various types of medical practices that are being developed to address inefficiencies in our current healthcare system.

Food will be served. Please RSVP so that we can have enough for all.


POST-EVENT SUMMARY: Fifty students attended this presentation by Dr.Beth Haynes on the history of government in US healthcare. Dr. Haynes provided students a perspective on the cause and effect of increasing involvement of the government in US healthcare. At the end of the presentation, the event transitioned into a Q&A and discussion about the current state of healthcare, including the question of how much involvement is necessary, and what, if any, regulatory bodies should be involved and their roles.

“The event went better than expected. Attendance was more than expected and many students were amazed at how little they knew about the topic. Overall everyone enjoyed the presentation and discussion afterwards.” ~Nishant Parikh, Rowan, BRI affiliate

“BRI events are always fun and mentally stimulating. In addition, they encourage medical students to explore different aspects of healthcare that often go unnoticed by physicians.” ~Event attendee, Rowan University
