News from UUJEC



Continuing in our series of briefing webinars on Healthcare Justice as a UU Value, UUJEC in collaboration with Unitarian Universalists for Social Justice (UUSJ) is proud to present Prof. Jerome Dugan who will be speaking on The Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA): Long term issues for the American economy.

Wednesday, August 2, 8:00pm Eastern Time

The ACA and the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA):

Long term issues for the American economy

Dr. Dugan will speak to the economic considerations of the ACA and BCRA. If the BCRA negotiations are still live, then attendees will hear an economic and systems based analysis that will look specifically at what legislators have to contend with on healthcare and the economy. If something is passed, the lens will be on what legislators need to consider in reaction, for the economy, and the follow-up legislation that would be precipitated.

Time: Aug 2, 2017 8:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
