Panel Discussion and Q & A
THE FUTURE OF UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE: IS SAN FRANCISCO LEADING THE WAY?

Listen to diverse perspectives from a distinguished panel of public health planners, care providers, patients and journalists — and share your own health care experiences.

Four years ago the city launched Healthy San Francisco, a pioneering plan to bring universal health care to residents through a network of community clinics and hospitals. Though the program has earned rave reviews for the quality of care and expanding access to thousands of the uninsured, the city is not immune to the national pressures of skyrocketing health care costs.

In an election year in which health reform is on the political front burner, what lessons can the nation learn from San Francisco’s experiment? Will preventive care save or cost more money in the long run? What are the potential long-term policy implications for patients and health care providers? What other cities might have the answers?

Admission is free to the community. Healthy snacks and beverages will be provided. The facility is wheelchair accessible.
