Sidley Austin LLP is proud to sponsor the California Healthcare Institute Conference.
Featuring: George Shultz, Distinguished Fellow, Hoover Institution, and John Shoven, Director, Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, co-authors of Putting Our House in Order: A Guide to Social Security & Health Care Reform, and a question and answer session moderated by CHI Chairman Hank Nordhoff, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Gen-Probe Incorporated.
Of all the issues surrounding the 2008 election, the staggering projected costs for the upkeep of America’s largest entitlement programs—Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security—loom with gathering intensity. Government revenues alone cannot solve the problem, but a solution must be found. In this conversation hosted by leaders from California’s life sciences industry, George Shultz and John Shoven take a practical—and optimistic—look at the issues at hand and offer an agenda for reform that will make these essential programs solvent.
