The Future of Health Care: A Symposium

Health Care is a topic that dominates news stories and conversations in our community as it is an issue that affects each and every one of us. As the future of health care in our country continues to unfold, the Missouri State Pre-Medical Society is offering a chance for students, faculty, staff and community members to participate in a symposium to inform and engage a meaningful dialogue about the future of health care. Representatives from a variety of medical disciplines will offer perspectives derived from their own field of expertise. These representatives will span the sector of health care and include primary medicine, mental health, community health care clinics, dental services and others. Each representative will offer a presentation that will include information as well as upcoming challenges to their field. These presentations will be followed by a period designated for questions from the audience. "One thing that I have noticed over the last few semesters is that students don't have a place to get reliable information on health care reform. Obviously the Affordable Care Act dominates the news, but there are other changes occurring behind the scenes that no one seems to know about. This symposium will offer a place where people can bring questions and get answers from experienced health care providers," says Nathan Nolan, President of the Missouri State University Pre-Med Society.
