This seminar examines and assesses our current and evolving healthcare system, explores the possibilities and direction of the future of U.S. healthcare, and investigates how modifications might move us toward a society that reflects care for the common good. Students will travel to Washington, D.C., during Fall Break to spend time with policy makers, health care advocacy groups, medical professionals, and researchers.
