What: "Knowledge is Power: All-Clergy Breakfast on Health
Why: Our Health Care system is in trouble. Will the
religious community take a place at the table
when the community's health care is at stake?
This event will be an Interfaith Breakfast of local
religious leaders who will gather to consider what
the religious institutions can do in order to have a
positive effect on health services in the community.
Recognizing the critical role of government, the
keynote speaker will be the Comptroller of the State
of New York, Rev. H. Carl McCall, who will discuss
his office's troubling findings regarding the Child
Health Plus insurance program. Other presentations
will involve the effects of managed care on the
community, the current state of preparation for
mandated Medicaid managed care, job losses in local
hospitals, an enrollment campaign, and a moral and
ethical response to a health system that appears to
be disintegrating in the nation's largest city.
