The Distinguished Speaker Program offers an annual series of lectures featuring prominent policy-makers, scholars, journalists, and other opinion leaders who address some of the most pressing issues in health care today.
This lecture series was launched in 2001 with Paul Ellwood, MD – the “father of HMOs” and instrumental in forming federal health policy and reforming private sector systems – asking a provocative question: “Does managed care need to be replaced?” In subsequent years, industry leaders such as John Wennberg, MD, director of the Center for the Evaluative Clinical Sciences at the Dartmouth Medical School, John Calfee, PhD, resident scholar of the American Enterprise Institute, and Robert Moffit, PhD, director of Domestic Policy Studies for the Heritage Foundation joined the list of prominent speakers at this coveted event.
Previous topics of discussion include:
- Unwarranted Variations in Health Care Delivery: What’s going on in southern California?
- Targeted Therapeutics – How Biotechnology Innovations Affect the Cost of Care and Competition Among Firms Marketing Pioneer Drugs
- State Health Reform: Revolutionary Possibilities
The series attracts health care industry leaders, alumni, faculty and students, among others. Attendees have an opportunity to network and meet the speakers at post-event receptions.
