Scholarly Perspectives on Health Reform

The 2009 O’Neill Colloquium, taught by Professors Nan Hunter and Gregg Bloche examined health care reform. A series of prominent scholars, researchers, and participants in the health reform process presented works-in-progress or current publications that address the various aspects of health reform. The colloquium was meant to provide students and other participants with a deeper and richer perspective on the health reform debate, as well as a sampling of the ideas and knowledge that scholars and researchers at the cutting edge are bringing to this debate.
