WHAT: Health Care: How Can We Reduce Costs and Still Get the Care We Want?
(A deliberative dialogue National Issues Forum.)

WHERE: Sumter Main Library (Boardroom), 111 N Harvin St, Sumter, SC 29150

WHEN: November 14, 2015, 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm EST

Americans worry about the high cost of health care. Many feel they are one medical catastrophe from bankruptcy. Nationally expenditures on health care far exceed spending on defense. Deliberative forums on health care costs challenge participants to weigh the costs and trade-offs of achieving the things they most care about: good health, ability to pay their bills, personal freedom, and a nation that can meet its citizens' needs.

Come, share your ideas with your neighbors. Information from this forum and other health care forums around the country will be shared in a report to policymakers in 2016.
