WHAT:

David Durenberger, former U.S. Senator (MN 1978-95) and chair, National Institute of Health Policy, and Susan Bartlett Foote, JD, MS, professor emerita, University of Minnesota School of Public Health,  will outline a new look at the legal and political issues related to health care reform. Both are guest speakers at the UCSF Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies seminar series on health reform.

WHEN:

Monday, February 14

3-4:30 p.m.

WHERE:

UCSF

301 Health Sciences West Building

Enter through Medical Sciences Building – 513 Parnassus

San Francisco

WHY:

The design of the Affordable Care Act and its implementation for financing delivery system and payment reform will require collaboration and cooperation between states and the federal government. States that seize the opportunity may win the race to the top in terms of system reform. In addition to opportunities, there are serious risks to implementation, including legal, constitutional, and political challenges.
