Health care 'diagnosis and cure' topic for symposium
October 21, 2009
“Health Care in America: The Diagnosis and the Cure” is the theme of the first symposium to be presented by the Bryan Center for Law and Public Policy Oct. 30-31. This symposium will examine the “Freedom Solution” to the current health care crisis, a non-partisan reform proposal founded on greater health care freedom and consistent with a Christian worldview.
The Center for Law and Public Policy was established this past spring to communicate a thoughtful, logical, ethical and Constitutional view of law and public policy issues in the context of a Christian worldview. Professor and center Director Dr. Kevin Clauson said, “We wanted our first subject to be timely, yet profound and challenging, and this issue is all of those. I hope that people who hear these addresses will come away with a new way of looking at health care policy. We want to go beyond mere negativity. We have some real, time-tested ideas that will work.”
The speakers represent different aspects of the health care debate, specializing in topics including health care public policy, medical ethics and economics. Speakers include James Lansberry, vice president of the Public Policy Department at Samaritan Ministries International and president of the Alliance of Health Care Sharing Ministries; Franklin E. Payne, M.D., former associate professor of Family Medicine at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, where he taught for 25 years; and Timothy Terrell, Ph.D., associate professor of Economics at Wofford College.
Sessions are free and will be held in Rudd Auditorium beginning at 6 p.m. For additional information and a full session schedule, visit our website.
