Policy & Pizza Series: Current Healthcare Landscape
Holland & Knight Program
Washington, DC 20006
Grab a slice, network and enjoy a thoughtful discussion on key policy issues. The Holland & Knight Policy & Pizza series was created to provide an informal setting in which young policy and legal professionals examine issues across the policy spectrum and engage their colleagues and peers in discussion. The lunch series will be held every other month, with a focus on pressing and topical policy issues.
Our August session will be spearheaded by Public Affairs Advisor Ethan Jorgensen-Earp and will focus on the current healthcare landscape. Ethan has considerable experience in healthcare and life sciences policy development, as well as government affairs. He develops and executes legislative and regulatory strategies for the firm's nonprofit and private sector healthcare clients, serving as their advocate before Congress and the presidential administration.
From fee-for-service to prescription drug prices, many have tried to target the drivers of American healthcare costs through regulatory schemes or old-fashioned politics. Join Holland & Knight for a light discussion about the political and economic assumptions behind what drives American healthcare costs higher. We also will talk about recent proposals to counter these trends in order to bend the healthcare cost curve.
