Join Clatsop Community College and Fort George Brewery for the next Ales & Ideas Lecture on Thursday, December 7th, 2023 at 7 p.m. OHSU professors Dr. Miguel Marino and Dr. John Heintzman will be discussing healthcare and if it helps us live longer.
Our society spends billions of dollars on healthcare every year, and sometimes it is unclear whether our healthcare system is more help or headache. Additionally, there are multiple opinions in culture on how to live a long, healthy life. Drs. Heintzman and Marino will discuss the intersection of these ideas: what if any healthcare services prevent us from (or reduce the chance of) dying younger than we would like? The answers may be different than you think.
Miguel Marino PhD is an Associate Professor of Biostatistics at Oregon Health and Science University in the Departments of Family Medicine and in the School of Public Health. He has spent his career doing research on how we understand the effectiveness, efficiency, and equitability of healthcare policies. He co-Directs the PRIMER (Primary Care Latino Equity Research) Center at OHSU. Outside of research, Miguel can be found fishing the Oregon rivers, sampling hazy beers, and cooking what Oregon has to offer.
John Heintzman MD is a family doctor, Associate Professor and researcher at OHSU and at OCHIN, Inc (a Portland non-profit that supplies and maintains computerized record systems to clinics who see underserved communities). He studies if and how patients across our state and country access routine primary care, and whether that care is delivered equitably and efficiently. He co-Directs the PRIMER (Primary Care Latino Equity Research ) Center at OHSU. When not working, he can be found fermenting various foods at home, cooking large pieces of meat over fires, exploring Pacific Northwest Oregon trails with his wife and sons, or chasing fish and game in Oregon rivers and forests.
