The Tenth Annual Deinard Memorial Lecture on Law & Medicine, “Slouching toward Health Reform: The Future of the Affordable Care Act,” took place at the University of Minnesota on January 31, 2013.
Sara Rosenbaum, the Harold and Jane Hirsh Professor of Health Law and Policy at George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services, was the keynote speaker for the event, discussing the range of system-based, practical, market, policy, political, and social challenges that lie ahead as ACA implementation progresses. SHADAC Director and University of Minnesota Professor Lynn Blewett provided commentary, focusing on ACA implementation in Minnesota and making the case that Minnesota is well-positioned to benefit from national reform.
The lecture was sponsored by the Joint Degree Program in Law, Health & the Life Sciences and the Center for Bioethics. A recording of the event is available online.
