The University of Charleston will kick of the 2012 Speaker Series at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 31, with a special panel on the future of healthcare.  “Who Decides Patient Treatment?” will feature Tommy Thompson, former governor of Wisconsin and U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, currently running for the U.S. Senate; and Tony Coelho, former U.S. congressman from California and chair of the National Partnership to Improve Patient Care.

The panel will explore the extent to which the public, the government, or insurers should pay for treatment that individuals cannot afford, the extent to which patients should be allowed to choose treatment that is not “best practice,” and other ethical questions emerging from recent and proposed changes in healthcare law and policy.

The panel is free and open to the public. For more information, call the UC Communications Office at 304-357-4716.
