Join CRF Family Research Scholar, Airín Martínez (FRS 2019-20) and faculty experts from the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst for a discussion about healthcare policy. Topics will include healthcare reform, access, quality, cost, and inequities, before and during the pandemic.
In 2019, 55 percent of Americans said they worry "a great deal" about the availability and affordability of healthcare, topping Gallup's list of potentially worrisome issues for the fifth straight year. A majority of Americans have said they worry a great deal about healthcare in each of the 18 years the question has been asked since 2001, more than twice as often as any of the other 12 issues most often measured. Now, with the rise of COVID-19 and the upcoming November election, the topic is more critical and timely than ever.
