South Carolina Law partners with Harvard Law & SC HIV/AIDS Council to host a community forum on the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid expansion

The University of South Carolina School of Law is partnering with the SC HIV/AIDS Council and the Harvard Law School  Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation to host a community forum to discuss the implementation of the Affordable Care Act—otherwise known as Obamacare—and Medicaid expansion in the Palmetto State.

The event will take place from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 11 at the School of Law’s auditorium, located at 701 S. Main Street in Columbia, and will feature a panel of speakers including:

  • Rozalynn Goodwin, director of Policy Research, South Carolina Hospital Association
  • Robert Greenwald, director of Harvard Law’s Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation
  • Tony Keck, director, South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services

The forum is free and open to the public, and there will be a time for audience interaction.

The event culminates a day of activities that include a press conference at the State House, where findings from a major research initiative conducted by Harvard’s Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation will be announced, and a training session providing guidance on how South Carolina can implement the Affordable Care Act.
