  • Healthcare Symposium

    Wellmont Health System, the Appalachian School of Law (ASL) and the Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership, are proud to present a healthcare symposium to be held on Monday, Sept. 22, 2014, in the Monarch Auditorium at Bristol Regional Medical Center in Bristol, Tenn.

    What topics will be addressed during the symposium?

    The symposium agenda will address the future of health care and will bring diverse stakeholders together to engage in an informed and spirited discussion about one of the most pressing challenges facing our country and our region today.

    The information presented by each of the speakers will build on an earlier forum that ASL co-presented with Wellmont concerning the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. That forum, held in 2012, brought together government officials, industry representatives, and academicians to offer a balanced, legally informed and economically mindful discourse on the issues and challenges surrounding the ACA. The panelists provided rigorous analysis, reasoned comments, and respectful dialogue. 

    By working together to present this symposium, ASL, Sorensen, and Wellmont hope to combine their respective commitments in a way that connects, enlightens and advance the cause of affordable, high-quality health care.
