A Conversation about Health Care Reform

Health care reform expert Jonathan Gruber, named the Democratic Party's "most influential health-care expert" by the Washington Post, makes a special stop at the Library.

     Jonathan Gruber, a health care reform expert, award-winning MIT economist, and consultant to presidential campaigns, is making a special stop at the Highland Park Public Library on Thursday, January 5.  Named the Democratic Party's "most influential health-care expert" by the Washington Post, Gruber will discuss health care reform and his new book, Health Care Reform:  What It Is, Why It’s Necessary, How It Works, in a conversation with WBEZ’s award-winning journalist Steve Edwards at the Library.   Gruber, who served as a consultant in 2008 to the Clinton, Edwards, and Obama presidential campaigns, was a key architect of the ambitious health care reform effort in Massachusetts. The national legislation passed by Congress in 2009 derives directly from Gruber’s insights learned during the Massachusetts health care debate.     Gruber will talk with Edwards about his book which explains the stakes, means and consequences of health care reform and and covers the questions on everyone’s mind.     The event begins at 7 p.m. and concludes with a book signing.  Books will be available for sale at the Library.
