Justice and Health: How the Affordable Care Act is Fulfilling the Dream

When: Tuesday, October 29, 2013 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Where: Stamp Student Union : Juan Ramon Jimenez Room
Event Type(s): Special Event

In Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream" speech, he describes the journey of black people from slavery to the promise of freedom. He said black people were given a "blank check" and the marchers were in Washington to demand payment. He also said that the people would "'.not be satisfied until justice rolled down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream'" This forum, led by Dr. Stephen Thomas, Professor and Founding Director of the University of Maryland Center for Health Equity, will focus on how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is indeed making good on a portion of that "blank check".

This event is free, and light refreshments will be served. This event is part of the University Honors Program's What Is Your Dream? programming series and is co-sponsored by the University of Maryland Center for Health Equity headquartered in the School of Public Health.
