WWJ Health Reporter Sean Lee reports the Center is hosting a panel discussion with top health care policy experts and national members of the media. The symposium is free and open to the public.
“We’re going to talk about, just generally how the coverage is, how it has helped people, what could be done better to help people better understand this law,” said Phillips the director for the Center for Healthcare Research and Transformation. “And certainly there will be a reflection on how the roll-out has affected people’s perception.”READ MORE: Detroit Institute Of Arts' "Inside Out" Program Expands To 4 Oakland County Parks
