Dear Colleagues:

I would like to issue an invitation to you to a national conference on the future of health care May 3 and 4, 2007. The event, held at Queensbury Downs, is being sponsored by a number of organizations and will feature some of the world's leading health economics and policy thinkers as guest speakers, including health economists Uwe Reinhardt (Princeton University) and Alan Maynard (York University, UK), Josep Figueras (Director, WHO and European Observatory on Health Systems), Arnold Relman (Harvard University and former editor, New England Journal of Medicine), Monique Bégin (former federal Minister of Health), and Roy Romanow (former Premier and Royal Commissioner). Stephen Lewis, former UN Secretary General's Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa will be a luncheon speaker.
The conference is open to the general public and will include participation from many sectors including community and public health, social policy, anti-poverty, labour, seniors, academic, health professionals, and students.
If you're interested I encourage you to register soon. I very much look forward to seeing you at this historic Conference.
Please feel free to distribute the information to others you think may be interested, especially to any students interested in the health care field. Please note the special rate for students.
A brochure, including registration information is attached or you can visit www.medicare.ca ( http://www.medicare.ca/ )
