Chicago Medical School @ RFUMS — LECTURE: The Effects of Healthcare Policy on the Patient-Provider Relationship

Chicago Medical School, Rm. L.362, East Pod 3333 Green Bay Rd, North Chicago, IL, United States

Dr. David Ansell is an Internal Medicine physician and the Chief Medical Officer at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. His work with others on the problem of patient dumping brought national attention to this issue and resulted in landmark national legislation to end this practice. In 1995, Dr. Ansell moved to Chicago's Sinai Health System, the State of Illinois’ largest private provider of indigent care and one of the foremost safety-net health systems in the U.S., as the Chairperson of Internal Medicine. At Sinai, he was responsible for the creation of the Sinai Urban Health Institute, which has become one of the nation’s leading centers for research and interventions to understand and eliminate health inequities. Dr. David Ansell on healthcare policy and the patient-provider relationship

Healthcare Policy and the Patient-Provider Relationship

Join the Chicago Medical School BRI chapter for a lunch lecture with David A. Ansell, MD, MPH. Dr. Ansell draws upon his considerable experience in urban healthcare to illustrate the ways in which US health policy affects the relationship healthcare providers have with their patients. His talk will hopefully open the eyes of future healthcare providers to the problems facing our health system today, and provide them a base from which they can find their own voice in addressing those issues as their careers progress.
