We know there is great concern on behalf of Medical Students about issues of conscience and medical ethics as it relates to the future of medicine. As a Medical Student have you ever wondered what your future holds for medicine? How will the new Affordable Care Act effect your decisions on issues of life? We want to invite you to join us for National Webcast with Dr. CL Gray. He will discuss what you can expect under the new healthcare law and what to prepare for as you chart your course as a physician.
Medical Students for Life is proud to present a National Webcast on “The Future of Medicine under the Affordable Care Act” with Dr. CL Gray MD on October 30th, 2012 at 9:00PM EST. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity.
Dr. C. L. Gray is a nationally known writer, speaker, and board certified physician practicing hospital-based medicine in western North Carolina. In 2006 he founded Physicians for Reform, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving patient-centered healthcare. Now in its second printing, Gray’s book, The Battle for America’s Soul, resulted from a decade spent in research and analysis of the history and philosophy of medical ethics. This book presents findings that link America’s present cultural divide with the practice of Post-Hippocratic medicine.
Dr. Gray wrote multiple national op-eds including two pieces specifically requested by FOX News covering President Obama’s 2010 State of the Union Address and a the high profile 2010 Healthcare Summit. With some 400,000 readers, Gray’s piece Why Doctors are Leaving Medicare became one of the most highly read opinion pieces FOX posted. Other op-ed’s appeared in The Washington Times, Investor’s Business Daily, The Washington Examiner, The Hill, and others. Gray has two scientific publications to his credit and has authored two books.
Gray’s work now takes him to Washington and state capitals where Physicians for Reform has been tapped to help craft solutions to save Medicare and Medicaid from financial collapse. In 2010, physicians underwent the longest interruption of payments in Medicare’s history. In January of 2013 physicians will face a 30+ percent cut in Medicare reimbursement; this places seniors at risk as doctors abandon Medicare in record numbers. Nationwide nearly every state faced massive budget shortfalls when the federal Medicaid funding of the stimulus bill ran out. These dilemmas can only be solved through patient-centered, fiscally responsible reforms such as outlined by Physicians for Reform.
