Among the many issues that face our country as we continue the transition to a new administration, is the state of our health economy.
Join us April 6 when Dr. Stephen Parente will discuss the long arc of health reform in the United States, and the choices that are now being considered for the next chapter. Parente also will present a health reform micro-simulation model in order to highlight the impact of those choices on the uninsured, premiums paid, and implications for the federal budget.
