It’s never too early (or too late) to learn about healthcare. I recently picked up my own health insurance and I know there is still so much to study up on. I’m sure that, like many, learning about how to increase the quality and more importantly lowering the cost of healthcare in Western New York is something that is important to me. It's something that we should all be conscious of and educated on. Luckily, WBFO-FM 88.7/WNED-AM 970 and BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York are once again partnering up to present Good for You, a radio series dedicated to healthy living.The third program entitled Increasing Quality AND Lowering Cost of Healthcare in WNY will air on Thursday, July 19 at 8 p.m., but those interested in being part of the audience can sit in on the live recording on Wednesday, July 18 at the WNED Studios in downtown Buffalo.
The event will begin on the 18th with light refreshments at 4 p.m., followed by a recording of the series newest installment. The event is free and open to the public but seating is limited so be sure to register online to reserve your seat.
The hour-long broadcast will be moderated by our own Jim Ranney and will include four panelists: Sarah Garder, Director of Communications and Marketing for the P2 Collaborative of Western New York; Andrea Manyon, MD, associate dean for student affairs at UB School of Medicine and clinical chief of family medicine for Kaleida Health System; Dan Porreca, executive director of HEALTHeLINK; and Karen Blount, RN, PNP and vice president of health care services for BlueCross BlueShield of WNY. These panelists represent the physician side, the payor and the voice for shared data and technology.
Audience members will be able to ask the panel questions.
