Diagnosing the American Healthcare System

Join the IOP in welcoming a panel of experts to discuss the past, present, and future of the American healthcare system. Since its passage in 2010, the Affordable Care Act has remained one of the most divisive issues in American politics. President Donald Trump ran on the promise of repealing and replacing Obamacare, but after unsuccessful repeal attempts in Congress this summer, the ACA is still standing. So, after seven years on the books, how has Obamacare changed the business and delivery of healthcare services? How have doctors and patients fared under the ACA? And how will President Trump’s executive order – or any future repeal attempts – affect the system?

Please RSVP here.
