Come see Healthcare Insurance from a different angle — an economic angle!
ALL are welcome to attend our FREE lunch lecture on the economics of healthcare insurance, delivered by Suyang Li, an M2 student with an economics background. Mr. Li has offered to deliver a lecture on supply and demand for OSU students who might not have gotten an introductory course to micro- and/or macroeconomics. He is then going to tie it into healthcare insurance costs.
POST-EVENT SUMMARY: Twenty (20) interested medical students came to BRI-OSU’s lunch lecture to hear about healthcare economics, presented by fellow student, Suyang Li.
Have you ever wondered about what drives healthcare costs? At our event, Suyang Li taught fellow students about the economics driving the cost of healthcare insurance. The Benjamin Rush Institute Health Policy Interest Group invited this member of our medical class to talk about the economics of healthcare, their burden, and possible solutions! Food and refreshments were provided for attendees.
During the event Suyang was able to engage the audience through an interactive presentation that allowed students to think through the impact of different economic policies. He was able to deliver a fundamental lecture on macroeconomics before shifting the focus to health management for students who had a shallow economics background.
“The event went very well and exceeded expectations with regard to turnout. It seemed like students enjoyed the lecture and got a lot out of it and attendance seems to be rising at the BRI events.” ~Mit Shah, BRI-OSU chapter
