Health Care from a PCP’s Perspective

Tuesday, December 11
12:00pm – 1:00pm
Lancaster Lounge, Moulton Union

In the International Journal of Health Services medical journal, it revealed states with more primary care physicians per capita have better health outcomes, including fewer deaths from cancer, heart disease, or stroke. Why? Spend your lunch hour with Dr. Carl DeMars, Mid Coast Medical Group in Bath, for a question and answer session on how your PCP can have such a big impact on your health. Other topics to include:

• How does a PCP choose prescriptions; therapeutic generics vs. true generics; are we an over-medicated population?
• Value based purchasing; why we all have to care about the cost of health care?
• What is the medical home, also known as the patient-centered medical home?
• Issues with self-referrals?

Students, spouses and domestic partners are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please sign up through Human Resources x3837. FREE lunch!
