As children’s access to quality and accessible healthcare is in uncertain times, West Virginia University’s John D. Rockefeller IV School of Policy and Politics is partnering with the WVU Health Sciences Center and WVU Libraries to host a Children’s Health Policy Summit: Understanding the People, Place, and Policy Behind Healthcare.
The summit is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. at the Erickson Alumni Center. Keynote speakers will include West Virginia native Sylvia Burwell, president of American University and former secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and former U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller, a leader in state and federal healthcare policy for 40 years.
Speakers and panelists will discuss progress and challenges related to children’s access to quality, affordable healthcare. Discussions will also consider the future of health policy and the delivery of care.
