HAPI Hour Seminar: Medicaid and the Role of the Costs

The talk will examine the role of judicial policy in shaping Medicaid over more than 5 decades.  Particular focus will be given to the current high-level legal debate over Medicaid’s future as a privately enforceable legal entitlement.

The Health and the Public Interest (HAPI) Graduate Program would like to invite the GU Community and the public to the next installment of the HAPI Hour Seminar series featuring Sara Rosenbaum.

A graduate of Wesleyan University and Boston University Law School, Professor Rosenbaum has devoted her career to issues of health justice for populations who are medically underserved as a result of race, poverty, disability, or cultural exclusion. An honored teacher and scholar, a highly popular speaker, and a widely-read writer on many aspects of health law and policy, Professor Rosenbaum has emphasized public engagement as a core element of her professional life, providing public service to six Presidential Administrations and nineteen Congresses.  She is best known for her work on national health reform, Medicaid and private insurance, Medicaid managed care, health care access for medically underserved communities and populations, and civil rights and health care.
