LOWERING LOS ANGELES' HEALTH CARE COSTS MAY DEPEND ON RESEARCH FOR NEW MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES

 LOWERING LOS ANGELES' 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 Los Angeles have been negatively affected by spiraling health car costs. The average California family probably spent 11.1 percent of its income on health care in 1991. Employers in Los Angeles pay the highest rate for health car for their workers. The national average employer expenditure for health care is $4,380 per worker -- in Los Angeles the average is $7,577 per worker.
 Robert Gussin, Ph.D., vice president of science and technology at Johnson & Johnson, will be available to discuss the key role pharmaceutical research and development plays to lower health care costs. Gussin can provide specific examples of the latest advances in health care technology that have resulted in better health care and cost savings, such as endoscopic, or minimally invasive, surgery and new treatments for lead poisoning in children.
