Talk on ObamaCare Set for Sept. 15

The Foundation of Wayne Community College and WCC Continuing Education Services will host a nonpartisan discussion on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Dr. Jonathan Oberlander, a political scientist and an authority on health care politics and policy, will speak about the positive, negative, and unknown aspects of “ObamaCare” and answer questions.

Oberlander is a professor of social medicine and health policy and management, as well as an adjunct political science professor, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the author of “The Political Life of Medicare” and co-author of “The Social Science Reader,” a three-volume collection of essays.

The free lecture is scheduled for 3 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 15 in Moffatt Auditorium in the Wayne Learning Center (main building) on the college’s main campus in Goldsboro.

Among the topics Oberlander will cover are what has been learned in the three years since the act was passed, and what the future may hold for Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance, and the insured, particularly in North Carolina.

No registration is required for this event.
