Dr. Robert Field to Speak about the Government's Role in Health Care at March ScholarSip Event
Drexel faculty and professional staff are invited to celebrate the end of fall term at ScholarSip on Monday, March 18th from 4:30 – 6:30 PM at Drexel's Academic Bistro. ScholarSip is an informal event that brings together individuals from across campus to join in cross-disciplinary conversations.
The shrill debates over Obamacare led to dire warnings about a government take-over of health care. The problem with those warnings is that the government took over health care more than half a century ago. Every sector of America's "free-market" health care system relies on a foundation of government funding and regulation. Dr. Robert Field will explore the true underlying nature of our health care system and the ways in which health reform represents an historically consistent progression during his brief presentation at 5:00 PM.
Dr. Field is a Professor of Law at Earle Mack School of Law and a Professor of Health Management and Policy at the School of Public Health. He is a nationally recognized expert on health policy and public health law and his research focuses on the ethical issues in managed care, public policy and the legal facets of health care reform and genetic screening.
