Ezekiel Emanuel, a former health care adviser to President Obama, will give an insider’s view of the future—and cost—of American medicine and how the Affordable Care Act will affect the delivery of care on Wednesday, Jan. 25, in the Cowles Auditorium of the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey Center, 301 19th Ave. S., Minneapolis.

Former health care advisor for the Office of Management and Budget, a prominent bioethicist and chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania, Emanuel will give the annual Deinard Memorial Lecture on Law & Medicine. 

Stephen Parente, director of the Medical Industry Leadership Institute at the U’s Carlson School of Management, will provide comments and a counterpoint after the lecture. 

Emanuel speaks from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and Parente from 12:15 p.m. to 12:25 p.m. Both speakers are followed by a moderated Q&A session.

You can read a series of Emanuel’s recent opinion pieces about health care costs on his New York Times blog.

The Deinard lecture is co-sponsored by the University of Minnesota’s Joint Degree Program in Law, Health & the Life Sciences and the Center for Bioethics, and is thanks to the family of Amos S. Deinard, Sr. and the law firm Leonard, Street and Deinard.
