The Department of Health Administration and Policy and the Center for Health Policy Research and Ethics invite faculty, staff, students and alumni of CHHS to attend a health policy seminar on Monday, April 14th, from noon to 1:30 in Mason Hall, D005.

 Dr. Cara James, Director of the Office of Minority Health at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, will give a presentation titled The Role of the Affordable Care Act in Reducing Disparities.

 Over 7 million Americans have signed up for coverage via the Marketplace, and more than 3 million people have enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP.  Before open enrollment, more than half of the uninsured were racial and ethnic minorities.  The Affordable Care Act (ACA) presents an opportunity to reduce this disparity. It also includes efforts to improve health care quality, population health, and access to care by strengthening the healthcare workforce. Dr. James will discuss the potential for the ACA to reduce disparities, highlight specific provisions aimed at reducing these disparities, and provide an introduction to the CMS Office of Minority Health and its current activities.

 A light lunch will be served. No RSVP is necessary. Please contact Alice Hreiz at 703-993-9490 or ahreiz@gmu.edu with any questions.
