06/10 - Healthcare Reform: A Louisiana Perspective (ENCORE SHOWING)

Are you satisfied with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act?

While President Barack Obama signed health care reform legislation into law on March 30th, the debate over the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act continues. Louisiana is one of 20 states suing the federal government over the constitutionality of the bill. This month Louisiana Public Square has an encore broadcast of “Health Care Reform: A Louisiana Perspective”, winner of the Louisiana State Medical Society’s 2009 Award for Excellence in Medical Journalism. Revisit concerns and opinions that are still relevant today.
