APPAM Student Brown Bag Series: Health Care Policy
There are many ways in which public policy affects health outcomes. One such policy, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), has impacted how the country’s health care system serves millions of Americans. The focus has now shifted to how policies like the ACA affect health care services and other social determinants of health.
As the country undergoes such reforms, it is important that policy academics and practitioners shift attention to how policies such as this will be evaluated, how they will be financed and what are the benefits and costs.
Please join us on Wednesday, October 21, 5:00pm – 7:00pm at the J.W. Marriott, Jr. – ASAE Conference Center in Washington, DC to network and hear practitioners specializing in human services and health care policy discuss topics such as:
What are the current avenues for accessing data to evaluate the ACA
What are the benefits and costs of the ACA from a federal and state perspective
How healthcare policy is being taught in policy schools
Financing and economics behind health care policy
We invite policy students of all levels to attend and share their experiences with other APPAM academics, practitioners and student members. Complimentary cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be provided.
