ASTHO's Response to Health Reform

ASTHO's Health Reform Action Team helps members and affiliate organizations respond to the public health provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

We communicate via newsletter, all-member calls, documents, and rapid technical assistance. This team works with ASTHO's Health Reform Committee, which is chaired by Mary Selecky (Washington state).
