The Fund for Public Advocacy, in partnership with the Office of New York City Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and the NYU Wagner School of Public Service, with generous support from The New York Community Trust and the Peterson Foundation, is sponsoring a series of roundtable discussions to engage members of the public, government officials, and other key stakeholders on New York City’s long-term liabilities.  The first roundtable explored pensions, and this upcoming one will focus on healthcare.
 
New York City’s commitments to provide healthcare to current employees and our retirees are critical to preserving our middle class.  But a weak economy and rising costs will challenge our ability to make good on those responsibilities in the years ahead.  Our roundtable will explore different strategies for providing quality—and affordable—healthcare for our workforce in the long-term.

8:00 AM -- Registration
8:30 AM -- Keynote & Panel Discussion

A light breakfast will be served.
