From the Pennsylvania Health Access Network (http://www.pahealthaccess.org):
This week (March 23), President Obama signed comprehensive health reform legislation into law, realizing a goal that many advocates have spent decades working toward.
This legislation is a big step toward quality, affordable health care that is stable for all Americans. It will slow the growth of health care costs and improve the quality of care for millions of Americans.
There is no doubt that this has been an exciting year in the history of health care reform, but much more work remains to be done.
Where do we go from here?
Join the Pennsylvania Health Access Network (PHAN) for a conference in Harrisburg on April 25 and 26, where we will tackle this question and many others about the next steps for health reform, including implementation at the state level. Speakers and workshops will focus on a variety of topics, including what health care reform will mean for Pennsylvania, how insurance reforms will change the insurance marketplace, steps to improve health care quality and much more.
