University of Alabama, Birmingham—LECTURE SCREENING: Why BRI supports free market healthcare policy, with Dr. Jules Madrigal-Dersch
September 20, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
All are welcome to attend BRI-UABSOM chapter’s free lecture screening on free market healthcare policy:
Why BRI supports a free market approach to healthcare policy, featuring Jules Madrigal-Dersch.
In March 2016, BRI board member and med-peds doctor Juliette Madrigal-Dersch, MD, spoke to BRI student leaders at our annual leadership conference about her joy in running an independent cash practice in rural Texas, and why free market healthcare policies make sense.
At this meeting, our hope is to educate potential members about BRI’s mission in support of free market healthcare solutions, and to encourage BRI-UABSOM chapter involvement and membership.
We will provide light refreshments and snacks encouraging guests to bring their own lunch.
POST-EVENT SUMMARY: The BRI-UAB chapter screened a pre-recorded presentation delivered by Dr. Jules Madrigal-Dersch at the 2015-2016 BRI Leadership Conference held at American Enterprise Institute in March 2016. Dr. Madrigal-Dersch spoke about why she chose to deliver market-based care rather than follow the existing insurance-based care model.
The event opened with a welcome to the attendees from UAB BRI officers, and quickly proceeded to the lecture screening. The lecture was part explanatory and part testimonial as to how and why Dr. Madrigal-Dersch chose to enter into the direct primary care model, and the benefits the model provides to herself, her family, and her patients.
After the screening, the floor was opened up for questions. Seeing none, Thompson Foy, UAB-BRI president, proceeded to inform the attendees about the next UAB BRI meeting on October 26th, 2016, and closed the meeting.
“We hoped to have more attendees, but we believe that the people who did come found the event both informative and enjoyable. Among attendees, the message of the lecture screening was very well received.” ~Thompson Foy, BRI-UAB chapter founder & president
