Former Secretary of State and First Lady Hillary Clinton will be the keynote speaker at a Geisinger health care symposium next month.

"From Crisis To Cure: Revitalizing America’s Healthcare System," is an invitation-only event that will be held Nov. 8-10 on the campus of Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.

"We have invited the greatest minds to participate in a powerful conversation about the future of health in America," Geisinger President and CEO David T. Feinberg said.

"There are plenty of people talking about what’s not working but it’s time to change that narrative," Feinberg added. "Geisinger’s history of innovation and our commitment to improving the patient experience served as the impetus for hosting this symposium."

Other presentations will include:

• "The Current State of Healthcare," by Gail R. Wilensky, American health economist and former White House health care adviser to George H. Bush. She is a senior fellow at Project HOPE, an international health foundation.

• "America’s Healthcare Crisis," by Ezekiel J. Emanuel, former White House health care adviser to President Barack Obama and a key architect of the Affordable Care Act. An oncologist and bioethicist, he is a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress.

• "The Transformative Power of Lifestyle Medicine," by Dean Ornish, physician, author, Nobel Prize co-recipient, and founder and president of the nonprofit Preventive Medicine Research Institute.

• "Positive Impact of the Private Sector in Healthcare," by Howard Dean, former Vermont governor and former chairman of the Democratic National Committee who ran for the party’s presidential nomination in 2004.

• "Transparency and Patient Experience," by Thomas H. Lee, chief medical officer at Press Ganey, an organization that partners with health care providers to improve the safety, quality and experience of patient care.

• "The Transformative Power of Technology," by Judy Faulkner, founder and CEO of Epic, the leading electronic health record software company in the United States.

Geisinger should be ashamed to have anything to do with this women. God help them. But, with today's news it looks like she might finally be in handcuff's before she has a chance to speak at their event.

Geisinger will lose credibility on this one. The presenters appear to be stacked in favor of Obamacare so it is doubtful any real dialogue or insights would be coming except of course from former VT Governor and DNC Chair Howard Dean who wants single payer. Wilensky appears to be the token Republican. The quote "There are plenty of people talking about whatís not working but itís time to change that narrative" does not sound like changing the narrative at all when you look at the presenters. It will be a rehash of arguments in favor of Obamacare or something closer to single payer.
