Profiles of the Uninsured -- and an Invitation for You

Profiles of the Uninsured -- and an Invitation for You

September 6, 2005

There’s a powerful new book on the realities of being uninsured in America:
Uninsured in America, Life & Death in the Land of Opportunity. It puts a human face on the problem in a compelling and careful way. Check out this site on the Commonwealth Fund website for a terrific synopsis of the book as well as descriptions of some key individuals who are profiled.

You (yes, you!) are invited to a reception and conversation with Susan Starr Sered and Rushika Fernandopulle, the authors. The reception will be on September 13th from 5-7 p.m. in the Taubman Conference Room, on the fifth floor of the Taubman Building at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University. Please contact HCFA's Marla Stein at 617-275-2926 or stein@hcfama.org if you would like to attend.

There will be a panel discussion after the authors’ presentations. This event is sponsored by Health Care for All, Community Catalyst and the Harvard Interfaculty Program for Health Systems Improvement
