The Texas Tribune is pleased to present, in partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas, a three-part conversation series on where the state is headed on health care. Join us in person or on our livestream for the third installment of this series: a discussion of the reasons behind the ever-exploding cost of health care  closing in on education as the No. 1 line item in the state budget  and what medical professionals and elected officials can and should do about it.

Our panelists are:
  • State Rep. Nicole Collier, D-Fort Worth
  • State Rep. Stephanie Klick, R-Fort Worth
  • Sue Bornstein, executive director of the Texas Medical Home Initiative
  • Daniel Varga, chief clinical officer and senior executive vice president for Texas Health Resources
