Health Solutions Summit: Options for the Next Congress

The rising cost of health care and the impending insolvency of the Medicare Trust Fund are key issues facing the incoming 118th Congress. With the need to tame inflation and reduce budget deficits, policymakers will need to consider a range of health policy reforms to address these challenges. Please join us on Thursday, December 15, for the Health Solutions Summit: Options for the Next Congress.
