The promise of medical research and public health to enhance and extend lives has never been greater. Regrettably, the obstacles to funding and delivering innovation remain substantial. This panel will explore the full range of health interventions--from prevention and researching improved treatments to care--and how we fund them.

  • What measures are most effective in motivating people to make better health decisions?
