Lunch Plenary – Reclaiming the Social Contract

Thursday, August 16th
11:45am – 1:20pm

We return to our roots with one of the nation’s most distinguished health policy thinkers, Sara Rosenbaum, JD, the Harold and Jane Hirsh Professor of Health Law and Policy and founding chair of the Department of Health Policy at George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health.

She reflects on the obligations we have for each other in her talk, Reclaiming the Social Compact, and invites us to think anew about government’s role in health care. No one is better positioned to explore and answer this question. She has advised Presidents and Congress, worked closely with states and consumer advocacy groups, and cares passionately about the needs of America’s most vulnerable people and those who serve them.
