Where does our health care system stand? What are the challenges and opportunities to improve coordination and effectiveness of services across the nation? How do we re-orient our attention and investments to build a true “health system” rather than the current illness-treatment system? What is the special role and opportunity for community-based agencies, including community health centres? One of North America’s foremost thinkers, André Picard will share his insights and experience, drawing from his work at the Globe and Mail and as an author of five books, including Matters of Life and Death: Public Health Issues in Canada, and The Path to Health Care Reform: Policies and Politics.
