Panel Explores How Health Care Reform Affects Young Adults
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WASHINGTON, DC, September 23, 2010 – American University Washington College of Law is proud to present “How the New Health Care Reform Law Affects Young Adults.” A panel of experts will explore the changing landscape of health care reform and the coming changes for young adults. The event takes place Tuesday, Sept. 28 from noon – 1:30 p.m. and is co-sponsored by the Health Law and Policy Program, the Health Law and Policy Brief, and the Health Law and Justice Initiative.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed into law by President Obama this spring includes some of the most sweeping reforms to the nation’s health care system since the creation of Medicare and Medicaid forty-five years ago. These reforms affect all ages of the U.S. population differently and will have a demonstrative effect on the way we receive, access, and pay for our health care.
Moderated by Corrine Parver, Practitioner-in-Residence and Executive Director of American University Washington College of Law’s Health Law and Policy Program, panelists will speak about how the new health care reform law will affect young adults in the years to come. Learn ways to take action to ensure that you are taking advantage of the many new benefits the law promises to champion.
