PULSE: The Atlantic Summit on Health Care

April 9, 2018

America spends far more on health care per person than any other country. Innovation and medical breakthroughs have been a hallmark of a system that develops new cures and treatments every day. Greater spending, however, has not translated to better health outcomes. Life expectancy in the US lags behind much of the developed world and has been worryingly in decline for the past two years. Why? Drawing from leading thinkers across the country, in combination with Boston's revered medical community, The Atlantic will bring together the brightest minds shaping health care today.

9:00 am — 4:00 pm ET

InterContinental Boston
510 Atlantic Avenue
Boston, MA 02210
