  "Health Care in Spokane: the good news"
Free Public Forum - Tuesday, Nov. 13, 5:30 p.m. - Spokane Convention Center

Spokane, Wash.-Noted journalist and author T.R. Reid returns to Spokane to lead a panel of local, regional and national health care experts in a discussion on how to improve the delivery of health care to our own communities by providing affordable and accessible care for everyone.

Sponsored by Providence Health Care and Eastern Washington University, this public forum is an extension of the important conversation begun last year, when international news correspondent and filmmaker T.R. Reid talked about his PBS documentary and book. Both offered an in-depth comparison of how health care in America differs dramatically from systems in other countries. His book, The Healing of America, critiqued how many countries around the world are able to provide cost-efficient health care to everyone.

When he returns Nov. 13, Reid will discuss his latest PBS documentary, U.S. Health Care: the good news, which examines what communities in the U.S. are doing right. He will then lead local and national health care leaders in a panel discussion about how to create a health care system that's based on quality, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Panelists include Carolyn Clancy, MD, director of the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality; Mike Kreidler, Washington State Insurance Commissioner; Paul Sherman, MD, MHA, executive medical director, Group Health; Mike Wilson, chief executive; Providence Health Care; Peg Hopkins, chief executive, Community Health Association of Spokane; and Karen Feltes, senior vice president of human resources, Avista Corp.

"Eastern is excited to partner once again with Providence to have this important health care discussion," says EWU President Rodolfo Arévalo. "EWU, with its Health Services Administration program at Riverpoint, wants to offer students a chance to connect with the Spokane medical community and learn about these important health issues."

"A well-functioning health care delivery system impacts every part of our community, and designing that system must focus on affordable, efficient, quality care," says Mike Wilson, PHC chief executive. "This community forum serves as a catalyst for additional conversation and helps identify long-term solutions."

Doors open at 5 p.m. Light refreshments will be available. Program begins promptly at 5:30 p.m.
