Join Altarum in Washington, D.C. this summer for our ninth annual Sustainable Health Care Spending Symposium, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Learn how America's soaring deficit combined with one of the longest economic expansions in history may affect future health care spending growth. Assess the progress of the health sector in moving from volume to value. Gain insight into the impact of these trends on vulnerable and publicly insured populations.

Congresswoman Debbie Dingell will kick-off the symposium at 9:00 a.m. with remarks on health care policy. In addition, we are joined this year by more than a dozen leading experts in health care policy and economics:
