Journalist, Author, brings unique health care perspective to Spokane
Spokane, WA— How could the richest, most powerful nation in the world have such a dysfunctional health care system?
That simple question was posed by members of a Spokane bookclub after reading T.R. Reid’s best-selling book, The Healing of America. The prominent journalist brought his thought-provoking ideas to Spokane last year during a community forum sponsored by Eastern Washington University and Providence Health Care. The event was so popular, we have invited him back for a second visit!
Reid, a correspondent for The Washington Post, National Public Radio and PBS will present “Health Care in Spokane: The Good News,” from 5:30-7 p.m., Tuesday, November 13, at the Spokane Convention Center. It is free and open to the public.
“With our high-quality programs in health sciences located downtown at Riverpoint, and a commitment to engaging our community in important discussions like this, Eastern is thrilled to partner with Providence to bring T.R. Reid to Spokane,” said EWU President Rodolfo Arévalo.”
“This is a critical conversation— one that involves every member of our community, from those who have experienced the challenges to getting affordable, quality health care to employers and community leaders who are seeking solutions,” said Mike Wilson, PHC chief executive. “It is our hope that this community forum will serve as a catalyst for additional conversation and help identify long-term solutions.”
Reid will speak for about 45 minutes and take questions.
