Authors Discuss Healthcare Woes at UVA

Posted: Updated: March 10, 2008 03:52 PM EDT

The healthcare crisis was the topic of discussion at the University of Virginia's Miller Center Monday.

Co-authors of the book "Health Care Half Truths" talked to an overflow audience about ways to change the system.

They took questions from the group made up of mostly doctors and people heavily impacted by problems with medical care.

"People relate the healthcare issue to their life," said Carolyn Engelhard, a health policy analyst. "Most people were talking about the frustrations they have from their own experience with the healthcare system."

Monday's forum was a precursor to a debate on healthcare concerns held at the Miller Center on April 9.
