Video Now Available for “Ready to Launch” ACA Event

(Updated October 8, 2013)

On September 27, 2013, the ISPS Health at Yale initiative and the Office of Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut co-hosted a conference, “Ready to Launch: The Affordable Care Act and U.S. Health Policy.”  With a turnout of about 170 people, the event unpacked the contents of the ACA for the country in general, and for Connecticut in particular. It delved into the ACA from legal and economic perspectives, but also provided information on how it would effect businesses and residents. The event was covered in the media:
