Emory University's Institute for Advanced Policy Solutions will host a panel discussion examining the critical issue of health care reform in the U.S., the first in a series of colloquia probing critical policy issues confronting America.
Monday, Nov. 12, 1:30-2:30 p.m.
Former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle In April, Sen. Daschle appeared before the House Subcommittee on Health, testifying that comprehensive health care reform "will demand that everyone check ideology at the door -- and that everyone focus not on what ideology dictates should work, but on what experience shows will work. To get to that point, there needs to be business leadership. Businesses are a major payer of health care and player in the political system," Sen. Daschle said.

Dr. Thorpe, who was formerly Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health Policy in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services under President Clinton, says the U.S. can significantly cut overall health care costs by developing a more efficient system to treat the millions of Americans who are overweight and suffer from chronic illnesses.
