Two sessions remain in the panel discussions on healthcare reform presented by the Gerber Institute for Catholic Studies and Via Christi Health. The panels are scheduled for Thursday, April 15, and Thursday, April 22. A hot breakfast is provided for the first 30 registrants.

The sessions begin with breakfast at 6:45 a.m., and include a panel discussion followed by participant discussion. The sessions conclude at 8:15 a.m.

The April 15 panel will take place in the Cardinal Newman room on the lower level of Sacred Heart Hall. The topic, “Perspectives on the Relationship between Healthcare and Financing,” will address such questions as “How do reimbursement practices affect models of care?” and “How would you re-envision the future?” Panelists include Dr. Ed Hett, family practitioner, Lynnette RauvolaBouta, senior vice president, Mission Integration, Via Christi Health, and Michael Murphy.

The April 22 panel will be in the Tarcisia Roths, ASC Alumni Center inside the Dugan Library and Campus Center. The topic is “Healthcare and Immigration Issues,” which will include a look at how immigration and healthcare issues intersect and what challenges must be faced.

Both events are free and open to the public. To attend and register for the breakfast, RSVP to 316-942-4291, ext. 2422, or e-mail [email protected]. For bios on the panelists, additional discussion, or more information, please
