Join us to hear Merrill Leffmann discuss what’s really wrong with health care and how to fix it
(This talk will surprise you)
How Bad Science, Bad Economics and Bad Government create our exceptionally low-value
health care system - and a brief introduction to how we can change it.
This talk explores the causal agents of why Americans suffer with what is possibly the lowest value health care system in the world. Much of the material might be new to listeners, as it challenges our thinking on almost every aspect of health care. Fact-based and covering a wide range of causal influences, this is health care talk like you’ve never heard it.
Merrill Leffmann planned to be a doctor. While pursuing her undergraduate biology degree at University of California, Santa Cruz, she was a top student. However when she found herself unwilling to kill mice for a study, she was told she did not belong in medicine. This changed her career path and after completing her Biology degree with highest honors she went on to pursue an MA in music and a career in that field. However, she continued to to use her science-trained mind to deconstruct the fundamental causes of many of our nation’s challenges, and last year turned toward health care. This talk marks the first public sharing of some of her thoughts.
