The Health Policy Forum at Rice University’s Baker Institute is a membership-based group whose corporate and private contributors help support the Baker Institute’s health policy research. The Baker Institute is across the street from the Texas Medical Center (TMC), the nation’s largest medical complex. Drawing on the expertise of both Rice University and the TMC, the forum offers a unique setting for medical and policy professionals to discuss issues of growing concern, including options for controlling skyrocketing medical costs, improving access to health care, and managing the growing burden of diseases such as diabetes and obesity. The forum also provides objective analysis of reform proposals.
