LOWERING BALTIMORE'S HEALTH CARE COSTS MAY DEPEND ON RESEARCH FOR NEW MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES

 LOWERING BALTIMORE'S HEALTH CARE COSTS MAY DEPEND
 ON RESEARCH FOR NEW MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES
 National polls indicate that 91 percent of Americans believe that we are on the verge of a health care crisis. Political experts predict that Congress will attempt to resolve this impending crisis when it reconvenes later this month.
 Along with the rest of America, the people of Baltimore have been negatively affected by spiraling health care costs. The average Maryland family probably spend 10.8 percent of its income on health care in 1991, with an average expenditure of $4,484.
 Robert Croce, president of Ethicon, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company, will be available to discuss the key role pharmaceutical research and development plays to lower health care costs. Croce can provide specific examples of the latest advances in health care technology that have resulted in better heath care and dramatic cost savings, such as endoscopic, or minimally invasive, surgery.
 WHEN: Wednesday, Jan. 29
 WHO: Robert Croce, president of Ethicon, Inc.
 SPECIAL: B-roll, photos, illustrations, graphs
 CONTACT: Susan Heins of Ruder Finn, 212-715-1687, for Ethicon.
