Where: The Aspen Institute, One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 700, Washington, DC

The Affordable Care Act is the biggest new lever for expanding access to care. It redefines how health insurance functions, significantly expands health insurance coverage, and accelerates changes already underway in how health care services are organized and delivered to patients. Through the publication, we explore what this means for two-generation outcomes that meet the needs of the children, parents, and families.

Presented by:

Alan Weil, Editor-in-Chief, Health Affairs
