Policy for a Healthy America
Wednesday Evenings, 6:00 to 8:00pm
September 4th through December 4th
Fall Semester 2013
West Village F, Room 20
Each semester we select one graduate-level seminar and open it up to the entire campus and public-at-large to attend for free. Each week we feature prominent guest lecturers with real-world expertise and experience.
This course will provide an in-depth examination of various health policy topics as-sociated with U.S. health care reform, and debate important changes now occur-ring within our health system at the present time. This is a seminar that will in-volve both an in-class and guest speaker component. Nationally reputable speak-ers on various health topics will participate to share their insights into specific top-ics such as Obamacare, health care quality, health innovation, women’s health, pre-vention, long-term care, health workforce policy, and patient safety. The semester-long seminar is intended for any graduate student interested in learning more about the challenges and opportunities now facing our health system, and how to better employ policy to fulfill the promise of health reform. It is presented in a dy-namic format that will engage students in a variety of provocative discussions and assignments. Three nationally known Northeastern University health care faculty will co-lead the seminar.
Non-credit participation is free and open to the public. After registering for the semester, you may attend whichever sessions you are interested in. Registering helps us manage expectations about attendance. In addition, being on the class roster allows you to receive timely information through class announcements.

Help Us Spread the Word
Although we have promoted the Open Classroom through various outlets, most people have learned about it through word-of-mouth. Here are a few ways that you can help to spread the word to your friends, family and colleagues.
Tell people about it.
The oldest form of “social media”: talking to other people. Tell your friends, colleagues, and family members about it.
