CNBC Health Care Roundtable Monday Night

Tonight at 9pmET/10pmPT, CNBC will run an exclusive roundtable interview titled “Meeting of the Minds: The Future of Health Care.” The Maria Bartiromo-hosted interview will feature some major figures including former Majority Leader Bill Frist, M.D., Dr. Steven Nissen, Chairman, Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Cleveland Clinic; Jennifer M. Granholm, Governor of Michigan (D); and J. James Rohack, M.D., President, American Medical Association.

Our favorite advance excerpt so far is from Milken Institute and FasterCures Chairman Michael Milken:

If everyone in American lost weight and returned to the same weight levels of 1991, we would save one trillion dollars. We would cover all the uninsured, and we would be able to quadruple the money for medical research. In the United States, we have plenty of capacity to pay for medical care.
