Banta Center to Host Discussion on American Health Care
(March 24, 2011) The Banta Center for Business, Ethics and Society will host a dinner and speech by Professor Alex Rajczi of Claremont McKenna College who will talk about American value and health care on Thursday, April 7 at 5:30 p.m. in the Casa Loma Room.
Rajczi argues that Americans are not as deeply divided about health reform as the media says and that Americans of all ideologies share some basic goals for the health system. Drawing on those goals, he maintains a health system can be designed that all Americans can embrace.
Rajczi serves as Novack Professor of Ethics and George R. Roberts fellow at Claremont McKenna College, specializing in moral and political philosophy and its relation to topics like poverty, war and same-sex marriage. He has been a fellow at the National Institutes of Health, where he developed an interest in medical ethics and health policy. He has written for Public Affairs Quarterly, the Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics and Bioethics. He is currently writing a book on national health policy in the U.S.
The Banta Center for Business, Ethics and Society, established by alumni David and Stephanie Beale Banta, provides a forum for the examination of ethical issues in corporate and professional life. The center seeks to advance awareness of ethical problems and improve the ability to make ethical decisions through dialogue and instruction from practitioners and scholars from a broad range of fields and disciplines.
Rajczi’s speech is open to the public. For more information and to make reservations, which are required by April 1, contact Vanessa Siliezar at (909) 748-8769.
