The average cost of healthcare per person in the United States is $8000, and in the rest of the developed world it's $3000; yet the life expectancy in the US is going down.... 

The cost of healthcare in our country will soon be $4.2 Trillion, nearly 20% of our GDP.

75% of our healthcare dollars are spent on preventable diseases.

These are just some of the facts about the direction of our current health care system. Family Medicine Department in conjunction with Family Medicine Interest Group would like to invite all of you to join us as we watch Escape Fire and discuss some of the concerns about our health care (as some might say 'disease management') system. 

Join the discussion!

When: 9/14/2014 @ 5:00 PM

Where: Randall Amphitheater

What: Screening of Escape Fire, light food/refreshments will be served. Discussion to follow.
