A roundtable discussion at NYU Wagner

Italy has a national health care system ranked number three by WHO for access and fairness with significantly lower cost and better health outcomes on OECD measures. As we discuss health care reform here at home, what might we learn from their practices?

Join us for an interesting and lively discussion with Ronda Kotelchuck, Executive Director of Primary Care Development Corporation, and Professor Paula Wilson, NYU Wagner, and three prominent Directors of the Tuscan Health Care System on the design and delivery of health care in Tuscany, a region in Italy noted for its primary care system.

- Alberto Zanobini, Manager of the Tuscan Region for Human Resources
- Carla Donati, Financial Manager for the Tuscan Region
- Maria Jose Caldes Pinilla, MD,  Consultant to WHO, Coordinator of International Health Cooperation program for Tuscany.

Moderated by:
- Jeanne Marie Kiss, Ph.D. Wagner alum and co-director of NYU Wagner/Medical School Summer Course

Reception to follow.
This program is a partnership of NYU Wagner with the Medical School of Florence Campus Abroad, and co-sponsored by NYU LaPietra-Wagner Policy Dialogues.
