Health Care in the 2018 Election


The University of Toledo School of Law student chapters of The American Constitutions Society and the Health Law Society are co-sponsoring a discussion on the 2018 election and how it may impact health care in Ohio and the United States as a whole. This is intended to be a presentation followed by a highly interactive discussion. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own questions. We plan to discuss how pre-existing condition protections, Medicaid expansions, single-payer proposals, drug prices, and even opioid addiction factor into the races and issues on the November ballot.
