Join us as we welcome Dr. Carole Myers who will be speaking on a timely and complex topic: National Health Reform: Sorting through the Rhetoric and Current Actions.

Health care was the single most important policy topic of the 2016 mid-term elections.  This has not changed as we approach the 2020 Presidential election.  Making sense of the Democratic candidates for President and President Trump’s rhetoric and actions is a challenge.  Join us Thursday, October 10, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. as we sort through what is being said and what it might mean.

Our speaker will be Dr. Carole R. Myers of the University of Tennessee College of Nursing and creator and co-host of HealthConnections, the show about people, health, and policy airing on the local NPR-affiliate, WUOT-FM.

Myers is a Senior Fellow at the Center for Health Policy and Media Engagement at the George Washington University College of Nursing and past American Association of Colleges of Nursing Policy Fellow (2017-2018).  Myers coordinates interdisciplinary graduate health policy courses and a graduate certificate in health policy and conducts research that centers on policymaking and health services with an emphasis on access to care, TennCare, public health programs, and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs).  Myers frequently writes and speaks on issues related to health and health care.  She recently has been contributing to discussions on national health reform, the transformation of health care, the role of APRNs, and grassroots advocacy.  Myers is an avid Tweeter (follow her at @TNpolicynurse) and writer of OpEds.

We’ll have light refreshments starting at 6:30 and our program will start at 7 pm.
