America's health care system is on the verge of a massive transformation, fueling a debate that has pitted neighbor against neighbor, patients against insurers, and the haves against the have-nots. We've demanded reform, but now that reform is raising more questions than answers. In a CNBC Special, "Meeting of The Minds: The Future of Health Care" hosted by Maria Bartiromo the biggest names in industry and government gather to advance the conversation and propose solutions to America's health care crisis. Will universal access lead to lower quality of care? Will our efforts to health care for all stifle business and put America at a disadvantage in the global arena? And what will American health care look like for the next generation? In "Meeting of The Minds: The Future of Health Care," we crystallize what's at stake in this great debate and get to the heart of what reform will mean for America.
In an unprecedented one-hour special event, CNBC brings together some of the biggest names in the industry and government including SENATOR BILL FRIST, Former Senate Majority Leader (R./TN) and Professor of Medicine, Vanderbilt University; JOHN C. LECHLEITER, CEO & President, Eli Lilly; ANGELA F. BRALY, President & CEO, Wellpoint Inc.; DR. STEVEN NISSEN, Chief of Cardiology, Cleveland Clinic; JENNIFER M. GRANHOLM, Governor of Michigan (D); MICHAEL MILKEN, Chairman of The Milken Institute and Chairman, FasterCures; J.
