An Update on Obamacare: The Promise and Pitfalls of Health Care Reform
June 18, 2014
Jonathan Oberlander, Professor of Social Medicine, School of Medicine, and Professor of Health Policy and Management, Gillings School of Global Public Health
There may be a time when the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) isn’t a hot button issue, but so long as it’s in the news, we are happy to call on Jon Oberlander, UNC’s resident expert on health policy and a nationally-recognized expert on translating the arcane and intricate world of healthcare and the insurance system into everyday English. A lot has happened since he last spoke in 2013: The Supreme Court upheld the law, the website crashed, and 7 million people now have insurance. Come by and learn about the law, its past, and its future!
TIME: 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.
