• Hear me speak (Boston area)

    If you live or will be in the Boston area this Wednesday night (April 6), you might consider coming to my talk at the Melrose Unitarian Universalist Church (map) at 7:30PM. Here’s the blurb from the local paper:

    Health economist Austin Frakt will present a program describing “The Great Challenge: The U.S. Health Care Crisis and the Complexities of Reform,” at the Melrose Unitarian Universalist Church, 70 West Emerson St. (opposite the Melrose Public Library) on Wednesday, April 6 at 7:30 p.m.

    Frakt has a joint appointment with the Department of Health Policy and Management at Boston University’s School of Public Health and Health Care Financing & Economics at the Boston VA Healthcare System, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. He will discuss the issue that today the U.S. health system suffers from problems on three fronts: high cost, low quality, and poor access for some to good, affordable, and timely care.

    For more information on the event, visit merloseuu.org/events or call Vicki Kaufman at 781-665-1764.

    Sides similar to what I’ll present are in a prior post.
