Professor Mark Hall to participate in ‘Decoding the Affordable Health Care Act’ on Nov. 17

Wake Forest University School of Law Professor Mark Hall will participate in 88.5 WFDD’s presentation of a Community Conversation: “Decoding the Affordable Health Care Act.”

The event, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, in the Greensboro Coliseum Complex’s Odeon Theatre. Seating is limited to the first 300 guests.

Hall, who is a health care law/policy and medical and bioethics scholar, will join E. Benjamin Money, CEO of N.C. Community Health Center Association, and Dr. Marian Earls, medical director for Pediatrics at Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine on a panel following a presentation by New York Times best-selling author T.R. Reid, who wrote “The Healing of America.”

Reid, who is the author of  numerous bestselling books and has produced and appeared in documentaries for the PBS program Frontline, will attempt to demystify health care reform in his engaging, humorous style, according to organizers. He will share what he has learned about health care around the world, and will explain what we can expect from the recently passed Affordable Care Act.

The panel and audience discussion, which is presented in partnership with the Cone Health Foundation, the Greensboro Public Library and the League of Women Voters of the Piedmont Triad, will be moderated by 88.5 WFDD General Manager Denise Franklin.
