Description

The Conservation of Human Resources, Columbia University, of which I am the director, has been carrying out over the past three years an inquiry into selected forces that are altering the structure and functioning of the U.S. health care system. The funding for the project was provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the principal investigator was Howard Berliner, an Associate Research Scholar on the Conservation staff.
