Motion: "This House believes that Silicon Valley innovation will solve the healthcare crisis."

Disease, infections, aging population, healthcare access and cost. Some people see healthcare as a crisis. Others see opportunity. While Washington wrestles with rising health care costs, Silicon Valley’s engineers and scientists are dealing in molecules, sensors, and other technologies to radically improve healthcare treatments, options and outcomes. Yet some observe that the science/engineering/innovation mindset will not solve the crisis— that, in fact, the most serious challenges in healthcare are not that rational.

Join us for an evening of persuasion, rhetoric and wit, as Churchill Club and Santa Clara University present the second annual Oxford Union debate on a big topic that matters to us all—with strong opinions on both sides of the argument.

Dessert and champagne reception to follow.
