DENTON — Addressing healthcare reform in the United States is the topic of a Texas Woman’s University public affairs forum to be held Thursday, Oct. 16.

The forum includes three speakers — Dr. Abigail Tilton, director of the TWU social work program; Dr. Dan Stultz, president and CEO of the Texas Hospital Association; and Zachary Thompson, director of the Dallas County Health and Human Services Department.

Dr. Tilton will discuss the dimensions of the health care problem in the United States and provide a brief overview of the reform proposals of the Democratic and Republican parties. Dr. Stultz will speak about healthcare reform from the vantage point of healthcare institutions, covering issues such as the economic impact of the uninsured population on the healthcare system in Texas and the United States. Mr. Thompson will focus on public health aspects of reform, including challenges of delivering health care to underserved citizens.
