Dr. Gerald (Jerry) Kominski, UCLA Fielding School of Public Health professor of health policy and management and senior fellow at FSPH's UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, has spent nearly 40 years talking and thinking about efforts to get universal health care in the United States. While the pace is glacial, Jerry remains optimistic. Since 2010, Dr. Kominski's research has focused on evaluating the expected and actual impacts of health care reform under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and will provide an overview of these, and other, reform efforts in California and the Nation.
Please join us for a moderated panel of health reform experts to talk about the strides we have made and the hurdles yet to overcome. This will also give us an opportunity to honor Dr. Kominski's contributions through his research, teaching and service, including the development of the CalSIM model, his legislative and policy analyses, and his contributions to UCLA and its students.
