The ACA’s passage sparked a national dialogue about what type of health care works best for the United States. Having failed to repeal the ACA, the current administration is promoting alternatives such as short-term health insurance plans and health savings accounts. What are the pros and cons of single-payer health care? What can we learn from other countries? Dr. David Himmelstein, co-founder of Physicians for a National Health Program and esteemed physician, led a panel discussion, moderated by Professor Robert Greenwald, Director of the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation at Harvard Law School.

This event was free and open to the public.

Cosponsored by the Harvard Health Law Society, the Student Mental Health Association, the DOS Grant Fund, the HLS Democrats, the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation, and the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics, all at Harvard Law School.
