Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Moot Court Room, corner of East 18th Street and Euclid Avenue
For over a year, healthcare reform has been a major topic and goal of Federal legislation. Claims on both sides of the debate have become more desperate, more sensational, and often the truth has become secondary to the talking points. What changes are certain, what changes are likely, and how will they affect the practice of law and medicine?
Mark Votruba is an associate professor of economics at CWRU's Weatherhead School of Management. On March 31, he will deliver the 2010 Journal of Law and Health lecture, Form & Reform: the Economic Realities of the United States Healthcare System, in the moot court room of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, located at the corner of East 18th Street and Euclid Avenue.
In his lecture, Professor Votruba will analyze the economics of the current state of healthcare as well as the potential effects of proposed legislation, questioning what will happen to providers, insurers, and consumers and what are the likely legal issues that will be produced.
Professor Votruba’s primary research focuses are on issues of health economics and public finance. He has written on the allocation of medical resources, incentives for care, insurance markets, the effects of plant closings on communities, parental job loss, and the link between divorced nonresident fathers’ proximity and children’s long-run outcomes. His Ph.D. is from Princeton University; his MA is from the University of Chicago and his BS degree is from Centre College of Kentucky.
