On the seventh anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, former top health advisors to President Obama, Jeanne Lambrew and Jason Furman, reunite to look back at the law’s impact. With President Trump and his allies working to find a replacement to the ACA, it’s important to review evidence of successes and challenges, as well as discuss the trajectory of health care in America moving forward.
The Century Foundation invites you to attend and listen to this critical conversation, which will be moderated by Jonathan Cohn, Senior National Correspondent at the Huffington Post. Cohn covered passage of the Affordable Care Act and currently reports on ACA repeal efforts.
Speakers will include:
- Jeanne Lambrew, senior fellow, The Century Foundation; and adjunct professor at the NYU Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. From 2011 to January 2017, Lambrew worked at the White House as the deputy assistant to the president for health policy. She previously served as director of the Office of Health Reform at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
- Jason Furman, senior fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics. Furman served as a top economic adviser to President Barack Obama during the previous eight years, including as the 28th chair of the Council of Economic Advisers from August 2013 to January 2017, acting as both Obama’s chief economist and a member of the cabinet.
