Event to focus on health care
Practical solutions for fixing the health care system will be explored at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe, 1110 Campus Drive, Suite C.
The Lifetree event, titled "Curing Health Care: Practical Help for an Ailing Nation," features an exclusive filmed interview with health-care insider Joe Flower, author of "Healthcare Beyond Reform."
"We can provide better health care for half the cost," Flower said. "And the answer isn't really political. It's economic. We're getting what we pay for in health care — but we're paying for the wrong thing."
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.
Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Mike at 272-6198 or email@example.com.
