Population Health

New Jersey has a population of more than 8.5 million, and almost 1.5 million of them are uninsured. With a rapidly aging population, individuals will require more and more care as they age. For the first time in our history, the forecast for the new generation is that they will not outlive their parents. The healthcare system in the United States is broken and needs drastic changes. Any changes made will fall short without consumer participation. Guests include: Sharon Seitzman, President, Qualcare, Inc.;Rich Miller, President and CEO, Virtua; Drew Harris, DPM, MPH, Program Director in Health Policy, Jefferson School of Population Health; Assemblyman Herb Conaway, Jr., MD, Chair, Health and Senior Services.
