Dr. Fernando Guerra, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.A.P., Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the UT Health Science Center, and recently retired Director of Health for the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District, will be the speaker at the 41st Annual Meeting, Dinner and Presentation of the Friends of the P.I. Nixon Medical Historical Library. The event will take place Monday, November 7, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. at the Doubletree Airport Hotel.
The topic of Dr. Guerra’s presentation, “Doctors and Dollars May Not Always Be Enough!” will provide the occasion for him to reflect on the health care system, its institutions, professionals, personnel, technology and investments, as well as measurable progress in the delivery of health care over the past forty years. Dr. Guerra will also consider ongoing challenges and opportunities, especially in light of the Affordable Health Care Act. How is it possible to fill the gaps when doctors and dollars may not be enough?
The Friends of the P.I. Nixon Medical Historical Library invite all those interested in the history of medicine to an enjoyable evening of good food and conversation.
The cost of attendance is $40/person. Advance registration is required. Student attendance is $30 and includes Friends membership. Opportunities to sponsor student attendees at the dinner are available.
