Under the Affordable Care Act, states may seek federal Medicaid funds to cover more low income people. States have been divided in their response. Join us for a conversation. What should Maine do?

What is a colloquia?

A colloquia is a series of community conversations in which experts, from various disciplines and perspectives, inform and engage the broader community to explore, discuss and debate critical issues in health policy. The Muskie School of Public Service is uniquely positioned to convene opinion leaders and researchers, policymakers and citizens to help enlighten and enliven Maine's health policy debate through a non-partisan and evidence based approach. Each colloquium will include presentations from outside experts followed by response from Mainers and a facilitated discussion among the group, with ample opportunity for audience engagement.
