|Anya Rader Wallack, PhD,

Anya Rader Wallack will describe how Vermont seeks to make health care a public good, create an integrated delivery system and move to a single system where access to health coverage is not linked to employment. She will provide details on cost containment strategies underway and explain how Vermont is implementing the Affordable Care Act as part of its broader reform.
