Tonight at 9pm eastern time, I will pilot Doctors for America's monthly Policy Call. The call is titled: Medicaid: How It Works and How We Can Improve It. Tonight I'll be leading a conversation with one of the nation's leading Medicaid experts, Sara Rosenbaum of George Washington University. If you want to listen in, click here for details.
Professor Rosenbaum is the Harold and Jane Hirsh Professor and founding Chair of the Department of Health Policy at The George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services. Between 1993 and 1994, Professor Rosenbaum worked for President Clinton, directing the legislative drafting of the Health Security Act and developing the Vaccines for Children program. She has also served on the Presidential Transition Team for President-Elect Obama.
She's written a huge number of articles. This recent NEJM commentary is especially pertinent for tonight.
