Spring Ahead with Brown Club Orange County!

Hold the Dates for these BCOC Spring Events




As we “spring forward” into Daylight Savings Time, Brown Club Orange County is gearing up for a busy spring 2017 calendar. You will want to “hold the date” for these upcoming events:

Thursday, April 27th, 6:30-8:30 p.m. BCOC hosts our 2nd Career Panel at Corona del Mar High School. Accomplished local Brown alumni from the worlds of healthcare, law, business and media production share their experiences about how Brown prepared them for their current careers. Alumni, students, parents and friends of Brown will all enjoy hearing their stories and networking with each other.

Wednesday, May 31 to Sunday, June 4th. The famous Brown Jabberwocks a capella singers return to Orange County for two command performances. We are working on an appearance at the Blue Beet in Newport Wednesday, May 31 and a private venue concert the following weekend. The Jabberwocks haven’t toured the west coast since 2013, so you won’t want to miss this rare appearance!

Wednesday, June 7th. 6:30-8:30 p.m. BCOC presents Cornelia Dean ’69, former Science Editor of the New York Times and Distinguished Visiting Lecturer in Environmental Studies at Brown, discussing her new book Making Sense of Science:  Separating Substance from Spin.
Bokus.com says “Cornelia Dean draws on thirty years of experience as a science journalist with the New York Times to expose the flawed reasoning and knowledge gaps that handicap readers with little background in science." 
Publisher’s Weekly finds “Dean’s excellent primer will be welcomed by those who find themselves lost in the fog of rival claims about scientific issues that affect us all.”

Join us for a fascinating and timely discussion of the intersection between evidence-based science, public perception and government policy-making.

More details and registration links to follow…
Ever true,

Seven Things You Need to Know About Healthcare After Obama

Goodbye to Obamacare?

Brown Club OC hosts Health Reform After the 2016 Elections
presented by Professor Eric Patashnik
Director of the
Brown Public Policy Program
  

President-elect Trump plans to scrap the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) yet says everyone should have health coverage.  According to the January 6th LA Times, there are seven things you need to know about the future of Obamacare:

1. Insurance mandates. Americans now need to have insurance or pay a tax penalty. If this is abolished, how will healthcare funding be affected?
2. Guaranteed coverage. If coverage isn’t mandatory, what happens to people with pre-existing conditions?
3. Insurance markets. If subsidies and minimum coverage requirements disappear, who loses?
4. Medicaid expansion. Will more flexibility at the state level help or harm millions who have gained coverage?
5. Medicare Part B. Is this popular program, including expanded coverage of prescription drugs, at risk?
6. Taxes. Various taxes have been increased to subsidize expanded coverage. How will tax cuts impact funding?
7. Adult children. ACA allows coverage of children under parents’ plans up to age 26. Will this change?


Come join the discussion and learn what you need to know about the coming healthcare changes!





Patashnik is the editor of the Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law
and the recipient of the Louis Brownlow Book Award for Reforms at Risk: What Happens After Major Policy Changes Are Enacted (Princeton University Press, 2008).
