A Public Health Grand Rounds event, “The Affordable Care Act after five years: Expanding health coverage in Ohio,” will be held on Thursday, April 23, 3-4 p.m. in the Discovery Room (room 163) of the Wright State University Student Union.
The speaker is Hugh F. “Trey” Daly III, J.D., the Ohio state director of Enroll America, a national, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to maximizing the number of Americans who obtain quality, affordable health coverage as a result of the Affordable Care Act.
Before joining Enroll America in 2013, Daly was an attorney with the Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati from 1990 to 2013, focusing on health coverage and disability benefits. For his work on expanding access to health care, Daly was awarded the 2010 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Community Health Leader Award.
Daly will speak about the number of uninsured Ohioans who have obtained health coverage as a result of the Affordable Care Act, why some uninsured people enroll in coverage while others do not, how people are using the coverage they have gained as a result of the Affordable Care Act and what the future for health care coverage enrollment looks like.
The event is free and open to the public, including health professionals, educators, students and interested community members. No registration is required. Free parking is available in Visitor Lot 2, next to the Student Union.
