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
- Rep. Joseph H. Neal, D-Richland
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.
