Over the years that Victoria Sweet has been a physician, "healthcare" has replaced medicine, "providers" look at their laptops more than at their patients, and costs keep soaring, all in the ruthless pursuit of efficiency. Yet the remedy that economists and policymakers continue to miss is also miraculously simple.

Good medicine takes more than amazing technology; it takes time -- time to respond to bodies as well as data, time to arrive at the right treatment. Join us for a stimulating discussion with Sweet about her book, Slow Medicine.
