BlueWaveNJ to Host “What’s Next for Health Care Reform?” Forum in Montclair, October 10
Montclair, NJ (Oct. 7, 2019) — The major presidential candidates are all promising big on the health care front. What exactly are they proposing, and what might they actually deliver with a narrow majority in Congress?
In a forum hosted by BlueWaveNJ in Montclair on Oct. 10, 7:00 p.m., three national experts in health care policy will outline and discuss competing routes to universal affordable coverage.
WHAT: What’s Next for Health Care Reform?
When: Thursday, October 10, 7:00–8:30 p.m
Where: First Congregational Church, Guild Room, 40 S. Fullerton Street, Montclair, NJ.
Heather Howard of the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton will outline the major proposals for sweeping reform, including “Medicare for all” and “Medicare for all who want it.” Stan Dorn of Families USA will address options for more incremental reform, focusing on what Democrats might do if they win the presidency along with narrow majorities in Congress, or with Republicans retaining control of the Senate. Magda Schaler-Haynes of Columbia University will moderate a discussion that will include the audience.
Dorn, Howard and Schaler-Haynes have all both been closely involved in state efforts to improve health care access and affordability, and state action will be part of the discussion.
