Event description

Description

One of the pillars of American health care is that primary care physicians refer their patients to specialists for complex diseases. However, this doesn't happen for everyone. Wait lists, a lack of doctors in certain medical fields, money, and the geographic location of the patient all play a role in determining which patients will actually be treated by a specialist.

This Tough Conversation will explore the following questions:

  • What happens when a patient lives in underserved areas and can’t get into a specialist for care?

  • Is there a way to disrupt this paradigm and can it work?

Please note: Reception begins at 4:30 p.m with the discussion beginning at 5 p.m.

I Can't See a Specialist is part of a series of Tough Conversations about health. Learn more about the series.
