APRIL 2017

4/7 – The path forward: What comes next for health policy? Seminar 1 [Online]

More details
With new federal leadership, there are likely to be significant reforms to health and healthcare policy in the U.S. The new executive administration and many in Congress have expressed strong interest in repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act. However, the path forward is unclear, as are the potential impacts to states.

This series of three online seminars will provide snapshots of federal health policy decision-making throughout 2017. National and Ohio-based speakers will address current health policy debates in Congress and the White House and the implications of federal-level changes for state policymaking and Ohioans.

Speaker: David Jones
Assistant Professor, Health Law, Policy & Management, Boston University

Online event. 10 a.m.-11 a.m. EST

General attendance: $20. For additional fee options, please see the registration page.
