About the Program
In 2007 David Goldhill's father died from an infection incurred at a hospital due to medical mistreatment. Mr. Goldhill, president and CEO of the Game Show Network, contends that his father's death was avoidable and questions how the nations' health care system allows over 200,000 similar deaths due to error. The author presents his thoughts on the expansion of health care coverage and why patients need to be more like customers who are active participants in the cost of their care. David Goldhill speaks at the Harvard Club in New York City.
