With the Affordable Care Act at the center of many national, state and regional debates, it is important to understand where we have come from to help us to forecast for where we are heading. Drexel University’s School of Public Health Professor Dennis Gallagher will lead the discussion and explore this controversial issue from a historical perspective. Dennis Gallagher is an Associate Professor at the Drexel University School of Public Health. Prior to coming to Drexel in 2003, Mr. Gallagher had a 27-year career with the federal Department of Health and Human Services working on community health programs and intergovernmental financing and regulation of public health programs. He has advised and consulted with federal, state, and local government agency officials, public health and advocacy organizations, and community groups on program and policy issues related to federal health programs, before and since coming to Drexel. At Drexel Mr. Gallagher teaches master and doctoral degree courses on US and comparative health system policy, and directs the curriculum for the Drexel Department of Health Management and Policy. 1.0 National Board of Public Health Examiners Certified in Public Health (CPH) continuing education credit will be offered at this event.
