The Salesian Center will host the breakfast event, Forum for Ethics in the Workplace at 7 a.m., Thursday, April 15, in the White Pavilion of the DeSales University Center. (Please note: This ethics breakfast was rescheduled from an earlier date, when it was canceled due to inclement weather.)
The event is titled, "Health Care in America: Is it a Right, a Benefit or Something Else?” Guest speakers include Timothy Nolan, CEO of Health America, a large health care plan, and Stephen Lammers, professor emeritus, Health Care & Society, Lafayette College.
Speakers and participants will consider the continuing national debate about healthcare reform and the numerous issues that are part of that discussion including questions like: Is healthcare a worker’s benefit that an employer must provide; Is it a citizen’s right to have health coverage and should the government guarantee it; and How can we get all providers, insurers, patients, employers and government to collaborate for the common good?
Both individuals will offer opening remarks about the subject followed by individualized table discussions and an interactive group discussion. Breakfast attendees will have an opportunity to interact with the presenters and engage with others on the topic. Registration and breakfast is $25 per person or $175 for a table of 8.
