MHA@GW student Nancy Edwards recently participated in ACHE’s 2017 Congress on Healthcare Leadership. We caught up with her to learn more about her experience, as well as what motivated her to enroll in the online Master of Health Administration (MHA) program from the Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University.
In a recent Health Policy Expert lecture series, Jeffrey Levi, PhD, Professor of Health Management and Policy at the Milken Institute School of Public Health, enumerated some of the gravest issues public health professionals — and the communities they serve — might encounter as the future of healthcare in the U.S. becomes increasingly cloudy.
In the 2016 presidential and congressional elections, Democrats and Republicans alike campaigned on the Affordable Care Act — either to protect it or repeal and replace it with a more effective solution. Indeed, the law has prompted heated debate among elected leaders who disagree about the best ways to improve Americans’ health care access, delivery and affordability. So what’s next for the ACA?
While the nation is watching the health care debate continue to unfold, American Indians in particular are paying close attention. American Indians uniquely benefited from the passage of ACA and could be significantly impacted by its repeal.
Passionate about serving others and being involved in his community, MHA@GW student Eric Johnson always believed that the health care industry would be a great industry for him to pursue. He credits his mentor, a retired hospital CEO, for encouraging him to pursue an MHA instead of an MBA.
