Health Care Unscrambled 2019

The Freight Depot

Atlanta, GA 30312

Thank you for making Health Care Unscrambled 2019 a great success! The program provided a special opportunity for health care advocates and stakeholders to hear from state policymakers about what they plan to tackle in the year ahead. Georgia's legislative leaders discussed what health care issues will be addressed in 2019 and how these issues may impact consumers.

This year's legislative panelists:

Senator Kay Kirkpatrick (R-32nd)
Senator Lester Jackson (D-2nd)
Representative Lee Hawkins (R-27th)
Representative Debbie Buckner (D-137th)

In the second part of our program, we were joined by David Blumenthal, M.D., M.P.P., President of the Commonwealth Fund. Dr. Blumenthal brought a wealth of knowledge and insight to our conversation about how innovations in health care and coverage can help us achieve better health outcomes for all Georgians.
