The next big movement in Massachusetts health care may come not from the state’s world-famous hospitals or its cutting-edge research labs but from its houses of worship.
Stepping up pressure on the health care industry to control spiraling costs, which are crimping family and government budgets, the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization will be hosting a forum next Tuesday, from 7 to 9 p.m., at Temple Israel in Boston’s Longwood Medical Area to grill hospital and health insurance leaders about the rising prices of medical care.
