The Future of Health Care Highlights Latest Smith Soc Trek

March 13, 2017

Smith Soc Treks, the Adam Smith Society's ongoing series of weekend-long, destination-based seminars, opened our Spring 2017 program this past weekend. From March 9th through 12th, a select group of Smith Soc student and professional members met with experts in the field of health care policy. With a program entitled, "Rebooting Health Care," the Treks series embraced a timely topic: discussions recently began in Congress and in the media over the proposed American Health Care Act (AHCA).

The discussions at Rebooting Health Care were directed by a team of health care experts: Dr. Rena Conti of the University of Chicago, an Associate Professor of Health Policy and Economics in the Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Public Health Studies; David Goldhill, author of The Atlantic cover story, "How American Health Care Killed My Father," and the book, Catastrophic Care: Why Everything We Think We Know about Health Care Is Wrong; and Paul Howard, Manhattan Institute Senior Fellow and Director of Health Policy. Our panelists welcomed two special guests over the course of the weekend: Linda Avey, CEO of Curious, Inc. (and founder of 23andMe), and Jonathan Hirsch, founder and president of Syapse.  

The Trek participants spent the weekend in Napa Valley, California, engaging in a series of detailed seminar sessions amidst Northern California's scenic wine country.
