NPR correspondent T.R. Reid to address global healthcare in Carmel Valley

New York Times best-selling author T.R. Reid, a correspondent and reporter with NPR and PBS, will present a seminar based on his book, “The Healing of America: A Global Quest fo Better, Cheaper, and Fairer Health Care,” at 5 p.m. on Monday, April 30, at AMN Healthcare, 12400 High Bluff Drive in Carmel Valley. The cost to attend is $25 before April 23 and $30 after that date.

T.R. Reid circled the globe (twice) to discover how the other free-market industrialized democracies provide health care of high quality for everybody, and that they spend far less on health care than the United States. The results led to the national best-seller and two documentaries for PBS Frontline.

Space is limited and reservations for the three-hour session are required by calling UC San Diego Extension at 858-534-9999 and referencing the TR Reid Healthcare Seminar and Section ID 090148.
Reid found out there were other options besides “socialized medicine” out there: many countries cover everybody with private doctors, hospitals and insurance companies. Japan, for example, has more for-profit hospitals and more private health insurance companies than the U.S., and has better health outcomes at less than half the cost.

The lecture is presented by the UC San Diego Master’s of Advanced Studies in Leadership of Healthcare Organizations, the UC San Diego Master’s of Advanced Studies in Health Law, and UC San Diego Extension.
