ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Affordable Care Act is a sweeping federal policy change that presents states with complex implementation tasks. Collaborative efforts among policymakers, research institutions, and health foundations will be critical to successful, evidence-based implementation. Participants will discuss ways that research and information can help meet the challenges of health reform and inform the state’s efforts.
