Access to Care: A Discussion on Health Disparities & Innovation

Join the Schaeffer Center and The Hill on Tuesday, September 20 for a discussion on making healthcare accessible to all Americans. What policy reforms are needed to minimize socioeconomic and regional disparities in healthcare delivery? How can the combination of innovative new research and public health outreach facilitate prevention, early detection, and more effective treatments? What would it mean for the overall state of our society to eliminate chronic conditions, like cardiovascular disease?
