How are physicians, hospitals, health insurers and others responding to the challenges of rising costs and debates about the value of the care provided in the U.S.?  How did the Affordable Care Act affect health insurance and health care and what might happen if changes are adopted? How might we expect the health care system to evolve over the next few years?  We take a look at important recent trends in the health care system and health economics and look at some that may emerge in the next few years.

Join local alumni for a reception preceding this faculty lecture.

Optional Tour at 4:30: A T-Rex Named Sue

The exhibition A T-rex Named Sue is a colossal exhibition from the Field Museum of Chicago featuring the dramatic, life-sized skeleton cast of Sue – the largest, best-preserved and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex fossil in the world. You’ll learn the fascinating behind-the-bones history of Sue, which is filled with all the scandal, suspense and science of a blockbuster movie.
