Nov 16, 2016

  Our guest will be Lisa Cacari Stone, Assistant Director of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Center for Health Policy and an Associate Professor in the College of Population Health at the UNM Health Sciences Center.

Stone was the lead researcher on a new study examining the impact of the Affordable Care Act on health equity in New Mexico.

The study was released by the Con Alma Health Foundation, which convened health leaders and advocates to discuss the ACA. The future of the health reform initiative is now uncertain given a pledge by President Elect Donald Trump to repeal and replace it.
