As health care reform continues to unfold across the U.S., Boston College Graduate School of Social Work will explore the context of the reform and its impact on the social work profession. Our school will invite key thought-leaders on health care to speak in a series of presentations this fall, culminating in the "Health Care Reform: From Policy to Practice Forum" on February 24, 2014. Kicking off the series is a presentation by Nancy Turnbull, a national expert on health care and the consumer perspective.
Turnbull is an associate dean and senior lecturer on health policy at the Harvard School of Public Health. She currently serves as the consumer representative on the board of the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority, the state's insurance exchange. Turnbull is also on the board of the board of Commonwealth Care Alliance, a consumer-governed organization that provides integrated physical and behavioral health.
Sponsored by the Health & Mental Health Concentration. Lunch will be served. The entire GSSW community is welcome.
