Doctor, Doctor, Gimme the News: A Physician's View of What
Really Works to Improve Health & Lower Costs
Saturday, Dec. 4 | Noon-1:30 p.m.
Keynote: Dr. David H. Newman, emergency room physician and director of clinical research, Mount Sinai School of Medicine
Newman is a leading voice calling for reforms in health care—in the ways we deliver care and the system in which the care is delivered. He will offer his opinions on how to restore access, quality and efficiency to our health care system. He will also address holding down costs as the primary objective in health care reform. You will not want to miss Newman—a doctor, teacher, author and soldier—as he gives a physician’s view of what really works to improve health and lower costs.
Dr. David Newman is an emergency room physician and director of clinical research at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine. He also is a major in the U.S. Army Reserves and served a tour of duty with the 344th combat support hospital in Baghdad, where he received an Army Commendation Medal.
A professor at Columbia University and the Department of Emergency Medicine, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, Newman is also the author of "Hippocrates' Shadow: Secrets from the House of Medicine—What Doctors Don't Know, Don't Tell You, and How Truth Can Repair the Patient-Doctor Breach."
