Rebalancing Health Care in the Heartland 6:
Public-Private Sector Strategies
The Rebalancing Health Care in the Heartland forum series facilitates a public discussion about health care in Iowa. The forums define key challenges in providing high quality health care across Iowa; assess the potential impact of contemporary economic, demographic, and political realities; debate strategies and identify viable solutions for consideration by Iowa’s policymakers, and anticipate new and emerging trends that may impact the provision of high quality health care to the people of Iowa.
The most recent forum edition, held on Oct. 15, 2013, had special emphasis on public-private sector strategies and will feature a discussion on the impact of the Affordable Care Act on business in a debate format facilitated by the University of Iowa’s A. Craig Baird Debate Forum.
The University of Iowa, led by its Health Sciences Policy Council, is proud to be the organizer of these critical and timely discussions. As a publicly supported academic institution, the University is uniquely positioned to provide a non-partisan forum for the consideration of issues of public interest and concern.
