Public forum in Midland aims to open dialogue about health care


A public forum in Midland on March 25 is focusing on health care.

The Health Care Forum will host five panelists to help open up a discussion about the current state of health care and what may change.

They include a registered nurse, a cardiovascular surgeon, and the director of CMU’s health administration program.

Dr. Zigmond Kozicki is the forum moderator.

“I’m sure the repeal, or the replacement or the amendment of the Affordable Care Act is going to come up in one way or another, as well as any proposed changes. I also think people will probably ask questions about the future of health care.”

Kozicki said he hopes people can gain a lot from the discussion.

“I think a new understanding of how complex health care is, and maybe an appreciation for how it is not like any other business, you know when people say we need to apply a business model to health care. It’s not like purchasing any other service. It’s unique particularly because it deals with people who have inconvenient illnesses, and people who have life threatening situations.”

The forum is taking place on March 25, from 1 to 4 pm at The Grace A. Dow Library Auditorium – 1710 W. St. Andrews, Midland, Michigan 48640.
