Event description

Description

Despite high public approval ratings for Medicaid expansion, neither Kansas nor Missouri has implemented it. With financial data from those states which have passed it now available, the long term effects are becoming more apparent, offering a clearer picture of the actual effects of this legislation. Come join a conversation to discuss the future of Medicaid expansion in our two states.

The dinner will take place from 5:30-6:30 at the William Jewell Student Union. American Public Square Members may register for free, dinner tickets are $25 for non members. Dinner admission includes registration for the program afterwards from 6:30-8:00.

If you would like to attend the program but not the dinner, simply register for the free "Event Registration" tickets.
