College of Public Health Symposium to Focus on Obamacare

Posted Mar. 21, 2011

John Begala, executive director of the Center for Community Solutions in Cleveland and a former state representative, will speak on the future of health care at an event April 4.  The symposium is titled “Reforming Health Care Reform: What’s Wrong with Obamacare?” and will be held from 4 – 5:30 p.m. in the Kent Student Center Kiva and broadcast live via webstream.

Begala has recently written about what he thinks is wrong with Obamacare and will be sharing his opinions with the symposium audience.  Obamacare is the slang term given to President Obama’s plan for transforming and modernizing America's health care system.

Kent State University Provost Robert G. Frank and Willie Oglesby, Ph.D., assistant professor of health policy and management, will add their perspectives to the conversation and also answer questions from the audience.
