Join the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation for a panel discussion with leading health care journalists about the rapidly shifting health policy landscape in Washington DC. The panel will discuss the high drama of a tumultuous year in health policy that has seen repeated congressional attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the resignation of a cabinet secretary amidst scandal, and a steady effort to undermine Obama era priorities. Further, the panel, joined by moderator Emma Sandoe, will explore the role of journalism in modern policy making, and how social media impacts the dialogue.
This event will be live streamed here.
