Second Annual SIH/SIU Health Policy Institute
Health Care Assess: New Directions or Old Paradigms? (May 18 and 19, 2000)


Health Care Assess: New Directions or Old Paradigms?
“The sum total of all ‘ethical’ medicine, as now defined, would be ‘unethical’ public policy which would give us a magnificent health care infrastructure, but, with massive excess capacity and spending, would impoverish other areas of social need. America’s existing health care system, with all its miracles, will never maximize our nation’s health, for it defines health as medicine and ignores all other health producing opportunities.”
—The Honorable Richard Lamm, Center for Public Policy and Contemporary Issues, University of Denver
