Heath Care Reform Q&A

Several economists from Ferris’ college of business will be answering health care questions relating to reform in the United States.

“Health Care Reform: The Economists’ Points of View” will feature speakers from right here on campus. Presenters include Ashraf Afifi, professor of microeconomics, public finance, and economy of the European Union; Abdi Ferdowsi, professor of various courses in economics; William E. Smith, professor of finance, management, and law courses; and Roy McLean, professor of microeconomics and macroeconomics.

After each presenter speaks for about ten to fifteen minutes, there will be time for questions. The majority of this event will be driven by audience feedback and questions. After the last speaker has finished, there will be open conversation for any audience members to get involved in and learn more. They are expecting many questions on cost and various plans.

Obama’s health care plan and its issues will be discussed in addition to a brief summary of what is currently taking place in the Senate and House of Representatives.

The professors at this event are concentrating on keeping the session informational and not political. They will use facts and figures to talk about health care reform in the United States. They will also compare our health care system to those of other countries.

This event is open to all students and the public. It takes place in BUS 111 on Thursday, Nov. 19 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. For more information, contact Nate Tymes at tymesn@nullferris.edu.
