Professor Mark Hall, director of the law school’s Health Law and Policy Program, was featured in the Winston-Salem Journal story, “Iraqi immigrant says High Point welcomed him when he moved to the city,” written by John Hinton and published on March 17, 2017.
Professor Hall spoke at a town hall-style meeting on Thursday, March 16, at the United Methodist Church in Winston-Salem. The meeting focused on conjuring opposition to President Donald Trump’s travel ban and the Republicans’ healthcare-related actions.
An excerpt follows:
“After Welch’s presentation, Mark Hall, the director of Health Law and Policy Programs at the WFU School of the Law, told the audience that Congress should repair the Affordable Care Act rather than repeal and replace it with the proposed Republican health-care overhaul package.
“Hall said he disagrees with the Republicans’ criticism of the existing law.
“’It’s not a big failure,’ Hall said of President Barack Obama’s signature health-care law. ‘It’s not collapsing. Congress can only get through a partial replacement.’”
