We all consume health care, but most of us don’t consider ourselves to be consumers when it comes to our medical care. Now comes the Affordable Care Act, an explosion in mhealth (mobile health) applications, insurance policies that shift costs to us, and contracts that put hospitals on a budget. In this changing landscape, we become consumers in a system that we may not know how to navigate. WBUR health reporter Martha Bebinger ’93 will share what she’s learned in her extensive research and reporting on health care in Massachusetts and beyond.

Space is limited and preregistration is required. RSVP to Martha Hamblett at  (401) 863-3433 or Pembroke_Associates@brown.edu.
