A fiscal crisis looms, budget hawks are groping for policies that will curb health care spending, and members of Congress are vowing to overturn the Affordable Care Act. Is there a way out of our health care mess? In his book, Tracking Medicine: A Researcher's Quest to Understand Health Care, Jack Wennberg maps his journey from young health administrator in Vermont to founder of the Dartmouth Atlas, the groundbreaking body of research that has far-reaching implications for the sustainability of U.S. health care. Wennberg's work overturns widely held assumptions about the nature of health care markets and points to workable policies that could rein in costs and improve the quality of care. Please join us for an important and spirited discussion with Jack Wennberg, Dr. Carolyn Clancy, Director of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and Congressman Jim Cooper. http://www.newamerica.net/events/2011/the_coming_challenge
