“Friendly” Health Care Debate on PBS

As I blogged last fall, I had the opportunity to participate in a Fred Friendly Seminar on the future of health care reform. Hosted by NYU law professor Arthur Miller, the program featured — in addition to me — AARP CEO Bill Novelli, former U.S. Comptroller General Dave Walker, Washington Post Bureau Chief T.R. Reid, and Harvard Business School professor Regina Herzlinger, along with family doctors, business owners, hospital administrators, and health policy experts in a lively debate over how to control health care costs, expand access, and improve the quality of care. That debate will be broadcast by PBS the week of January 18. For information on when it can be seen in your area, click here.
