"Implementing Health Care Reform: It's Complicated"

The Affordable Care Act is one of the largest pieces of social legislation in the past 50 years. Not surprisingly, its implementation has had some expected and some unexpected challenges. Join us as this panel of Penn faculty and alumni discuss the law's intent, early results, and what to look for in the future. We'll have lots of time for audience interaction and conversation. Registration is requested but not required.
