ADVISORY: Long Time Coming – A Historical Look at Health Reform and Priorities for 2009
Featured Speaker: Chairman John D. Dingell (D-MI)
As the nation’s political discourse turns again to health reform, pundits and policymakers have begun handicapping the prospects of meaningful change in 2009. After years of failed efforts and incremental changes, the nation may be poised, with new leadership in the White House and committed leaders in Congress, to guarantee affordable health coverage for all Americans. Rep. John Dingell (D-MI), Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and a lifelong champion for this issue, will look back at the history of health reform in the United States and offer his perspective on the possibilities for reform with a new president.
Monday, July 14, 2008 Program: 12:00pm to 1:00pm Admission is free.
A light lunch will be served.
