American health care spending accounts for $3.8 trillion or nearly 18% of Gross Domestic Product. The scale of that spending has implications for our wallets—averaging more than $11,000 per person per year—and, more importantly for our well-being. With so much at stake, questions arise: What’s the best way to deliver healthcare? How do we pay for health care? How do we manage its rising costs? In the COVID era, these questions have become even more urgent.
We hope you will join us again for meaningful dialogue.
