An Objective Look at the New Healthcare Legislation
Walden University’s College of Health Sciences is pleased to offer you the opportunity to gain insight on the new healthcare landscape from a renowned industry expert. We invite you to view the Walden On-Demand Webinar An Objective Look at the New Healthcare Legislation.
Todd C.

He has testified before the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate on healthcare issues, and he led a national effort to add language to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 that addressed the inequitable Medicare reimbursement level for mid-sized rural hospitals in the United States.
