Building the 9th Ward Field of Dreams (Magnolia 4)
In the summer of 2008, 30 students emerged from seven classroom FEMA trailers at George Washington Carver High School in New Orleans and courageously took to the field as a football team. Their field? An abandoned lot in the shadow of their Hurricane Katrina-devastated high school. These students inspired Brian Bordainick, then a 24-year-old teacher, and many others to resurrect a community and change the outcome of a forgotten neighborhood. Come hear how Brian organized one community after Hurricane Katrina to believe in their own power to create change and to overcome a seemingly impossible challenge…to fund a 9th Ward Field of Dreams.
10:00 a.m. The Problem is Poverty: Why Poverty and Income Inequality Are at the Core of America’s High Health Care Spending, Kurt Mosley, Vice President for Strategic Alliances, Merritt Hawkins (Magnolia 4)
While waste and inefficiency clearly exist, poverty is at the core of America’s high healthcare spending, not the greed or ineptitude of the nation’s physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers. Using data and analysis from the landmark book, Poverty and the Myths of Health Care Reform by the late Richard “Buz” Cooper, M.D., consultants with Merritt Hawkins demonstrate the impact poverty has on healthcare spending and why addressing the societal determinants of health is so critical.
