T.R Reid is a reporter for The Washington Post, an author, a PBS and NPR correspondent, and a documentary filmmaker. His latest project, the PBS documentary, "U.S. Healthcare: The Good News," reveals local health-care initiatives that drive down costs while delivering high-quality care. We'll talk with T. R. Reid tonight at 8 on Smart Talk.
Reid is in Hershey today to speak at a forum sponsored by Capital Blue Cross and witf called, "What's Working, What's Not, What's Next?" The symposium is open to the public from 8:30-11:30 a.m. at the Hershey Lodge and focuses on community programs that effectively treat patients and contribute to their well being at an affordable cost. In his 2009 best-selling book, "The Healing of America: A Global Quest for Better, Cheaper and Fairer Health Care," Reid documented his personal odyssey through the medical and insurance industry in the U.S. and abroad as he sought the best treatment option and cost to repair a shoulder injury. As Reid often points out, the United States is the only industrialized democracy that does not provide health care to all of its citizens.
He'll share his insights on the state of medicine and health-insurance coverage with us. You can send your questions and comments for T. R. Reid to firstname.lastname@example.org, post a comment below this article, or on witf's Facebook page. And you can watch the full documentary, "U.S. Healthcare: The Good News," following Smart Talk right here on witf TV at 9 p.m.
