Please join WPA, WEFA, and WHN for a debate on the current state of healthcare policy in the United Sates.

The event will feature two speakers, Robert Moffit from the Heritage Foundation and Richard Kirsch from the Roosevelt Institute who will explore implementation issues surrounding the Affordable Care Act (ACA/Obamacare) and the law's future. The speakers will discuss the merits of ACA alternatives and whether the law needs to be replaced and/or improved. Additionally, they will deliberate alternative strategies for increasing access to care and reducing health care costs.

The event will be moderated by an NYU Wagner professor. Light refreshments will be served.
