Jonathan Skinner
Jonathan Skinner
Jonathan Skinner, professor of economics at Dartmouth College, will present a lecture titled “What You Need to Know about Health Care Reform” on Thursday, Feb. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Hamilton College Chapel. His talk is part of the Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center series “Crisis: Danger and Opportunity.” All lectures are free and open to the public.

Skinner teaches in the family and community medicine department and is a well-known expert on the economics of health care. He is a frequent contributor to scholarly journals, such as the Journal of Public Economics and Health Affairs, and has also written several chapters of edited books.

In his talk he will address the general issues of why doing something about health care cost growth is critical; why existing health care reform legislation may not solve our problems; have other countries figured out a better way?; why do health care costs vary so much across regions? What is needed to fix American health care, and will the health reform bill (if one exists) be successful?
