The Women Faculty Forum at Yale and the Yale Office of WorkLife will present a free and public forum on November 16 focusing on women's healthcare from a variety of perspectives.

Titled 'How Health Works Out: Healthcare Challenges throughout the Lifecycle,' the discussion takes place 5:307 p.m. at Rosenfeld Hall, 109 Grove St. (entrance on Temple St.), Room 101.

Panelists are Sherry A.M. Glied, professor and chair of the Department of Health Policy and Management, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, and Yale faculty members Jacob Hacker, the Peter Strauss Family Assistant Professor of Political Science, and Jennifer Prah Ruger, assistant professor, Division of Global Health. The moderator is Carolyn Mazure, professor of psychiatry, also at Yale.

This forum will examine the state of the health-care infrastructure today and its effectiveness in addressing health-care needs. In a global context, health disparities continue to grow, often disproportionately affecting women, children and the elderly. Panelists will consider such questions as: How can burdens of care be managed by improving access (coverage, cost, location, availability)? How do current national and global government-provided health systems, funding and research impact the populations they serve? What possibilities exist for reform and what social values play a role in prioritizing future plans?
