Series of Forums Aims to Show What National Health Reform Will Mean to You

A series of three forums held at Cleveland State University in May and June aims to help attendees learn more about national health care reform. Free and open to the public, the forums are designed to encourage dialogue between citizens, government leaders and stakeholders in health care.

The third event in this series is:

National Health Reform Begins:  THE DELIVERY OF CARE STORY

JUNE 20: This third and final forum will focus on the delivery system transformation encouraged by the Affordable Care Act and how that might impact the ways in which individuals will receive health care. It will feature Greg Moody, Director of Governor Kasich’s Office of Health Transformation, who will share how Ohio will implement the national health reform law so as to improve the quality and coordination of health care while reducing costs.

Diane Suchetka, Medical Reporter for The Plain Dealer, will moderate the forum. Panelists will include Cathy Levine, J.D., Executive Director of UHCAN Ohio and Co-Chair of Ohio Consumers for Health Coverage; Peter DeGolia, M.D., C.M.D., Director of the Center for Geriatric Medicine of University Hospitals Case Medical Center and Executive Director of McGregor PACE; Gwyn Hartman, M.B.A., Director of Care Management Programs for the MetroHealth System; John Begala, Executive Director of the Center for Community Solutions; and, Aaron Smith, M.D., Kaiser Permanente.

“National Health Care Reform” is a series of three forums created by the Universal Health Care Action Network of Ohio (UHCAN Ohio) to create a dialogue between citizens, government leaders and stakeholders in the businesses of health care. The goal of the forums is to educate consumers by providing objective, factual information about the changes that can be expected as the components of the reform are phased-in.

The series is made possible by the generous support of The George Gund Foundation, Kaiser Permanente and the Sisters of Charity Health System.
