Research to Reality Cyber-Seminar: Implementation and Implications: The Impact of the Affordable Care Act on Cancer Control

Registration Confirmation - R2R Cyber-Seminar: State Cancer Profiles

Implementation and Implications: The Impact of the Affordable Care Act on Cancer Control

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013, 2:00 p.m. 3:00 p.m. ET

It has been three years since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law. Most of the provisions will have been implemented by the start of 2014. The September National Cancer Institute (NCI) Research to Reality cyber-seminar will explore the major provisions of the ACA and Medicaid changes and their implications for cancer control. We will also examine how cancer control coalitions and organizations are addressing these changes.

Carter Steger from the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network will join us to share an overview of the ACA implementation and the changes to Medicaid and the specific impacts on cancer control.

Dr. Jennifer Redmond from the University of Kentucky will then share an example of how her state coalition has been working with multiple government offices and organizations to implement ACA and its impact on screening and prevention.  She will share her perspective on the progress made and the lessons learned in Kentucky as well as those of her colleagues in other states. 

Ms. Steger and Dr. Redmond will share their perspectives on the impact of the ACA and how state and local coalitions can align the priorities and efforts to seize the opportunities and address the issues that stem from the ACA.

The final part of the webinar will be dedicated to Q&A and discussion and will offer an opportunity to engage with the presenters, and also to share your own experiences and thoughts.
