The next Sustainable West Seattle Community Forum is about Health. We’ll again be at the Senior Center of West Seattle, on SW Oregon St. right around the corner from California Ave. SW. We meet upstairs in the large community room.
Our health care system is both more expensive and has lower quality than other industrialized countries. Many describe this as a sick care system because significant is not spent until after you get sick. Communities are now developing alternatives that cost less and move people toward whole health. By focusing on prevention and early intervention we can also drop the costs of health care.
Our speaker is Dale Jarvis, a healthcare consultant and West Seattlite who has worked at fixing the healthcare system in 20 states since the federal healthcare law passed in 2010. Dale will describe healthcare reform ‘triples’ and ‘home runs’ that can fit Seattle’s neighborhoods. Join this discussion of a new healthcare ecosystem for West Seattle.
