NOTE: This event takes place in the Eastern time zone.
University of Louisville School of Medicine is proud to host another BRI Chapter Debate on the future of healthcare. Dr. Garrett Adams, president of Physicians for a National Health Program and Dr. Michael Strickland of LetMyDoctorPractice.org will argue both sides of this highly contested national debate. Dr. Strickland will be taking a stance on a more conservative, private payer healthcare system; Dr. Adams will argue for a more liberal, single-payer health plan.
There will also be a free Qdoba buffet provided before the event!
Street meter parking is available all around campus, and there is also a UofL garage at the corner of Chestnut and Preston Street.
We look forward to seeing you at what will surely be an informative, lively event.
POST-EVENT SUMMARY: 70 students and faculty attended BRI-ULSOM Chapter’s one-on-one debate on the future of healthcare. Because our speakers were both physicians and not healthcare policy experts, the tone of the event was more that of an open discussion than a debate. Dr. Adams and Dr. Strickland frequently agreed and tended to avoid taking a firm stand on issues. This can be typical of physicians who as healers can lean toward smoothing over differences and focusing on solutions, but who consequently can avoid tackling legitimately controversial topics. However, it was valuable to discover where we share common ground and can find compatible healthcare policy solutions.
