Election 2012: Policy Perspectives -- Focus on Health Policy

A key mission of the Baker Institute is to bridge the gap between the world of ideas and the world of action. The "Election 2012: Policy Perspectives" series seeks to do that by providing a nonpartisan forum for discussion and debate of the key issues in this year"s U.S. presidential race.

"Election 2012: Policy Perspectives" includes events, policy reports and social media campaigns that connect Baker Institute experts with the public on timely, relevant topics -- such as jobs, the economy and health care.

At this event, Baker Institute experts will discuss how health care reform could evolve under a future Democratic or Republican presidential administration. The presentations will be followed by a moderated talk and questions from the audience. Please join us for an engaging and informative discussion of an issue that affects all Americans.
