Uncertain Care – The Future of the Affordable Care Act

Health Law Symposium

Friday, March 31, 2017 from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law, Wade Auditorium
1 North Front Street, Memphis, Tennessee 38103

(5.5 hours CLE & CME Credit available)

Our new administration seeks substantial changes to the nation’s healthcare system, but what will that change ultimately look like?  Congressional leadership recently revealed its initial proposed replacement, The American Health Care Act.  How will this proposal or other replacement options affect all levels of the healthcare system?


This bi-partisan symposium will strive to give an overview of the accomplishments and challenges of the Affordable Care Act, an update on its status, and a brief summary of “repeal and replace” options, including The American Health Care Act.  Local and national experts will discuss what the push to “repeal and replace” means for our local community, and what these leaders from various key perspectives consider critical elements to any efforts to amend or replace current law.

Join us as we seek to move from a reactive posture to proactively crafting an agenda for reform that seeks to ensure continued access to affordable, quality care in our community while balancing various approaches.
