Podcast: Gov. Kitzhaber on Reform We Can Believe In During a Time of Trump
In our latest podcast, former Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber joined us at our 2017 Northern California State of Reform Health Policy Conference as our afternoon keynote speaker. He discussed the pathways forward for states like California as they seek to continue progress of reform started by the ACA.
Drawing upon his four decades of health policy experience, including reforming Oregon Medicaid, Kitzhaber connected the dots between the opportunity presented by a changing federal policy landscape and the challenges of funding the safety net in California. Ranked #2 on Modern Healthcare’s 2013 list of Most Influential in Healthcare, ahead of President Obama, Kitzhaber brings a depth of state and national experience few other policy makers can match.
