One of the nation’s premier health advocates will provide timely and provocative analysis of the country’s health care needs and Health Reform legislation during an Oct. 2 lecture in LIU Brooklyn’s Kumble Theater.

As part of its free campus and community public education series, “Brooklyn’s Health,” LIU Brooklyn’s School of Health Professions has invited Dr. Thomas Elwood, executive director of the Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions, to give a bipartisan, no-holds-barred presentation about why health reform was necessary, to what degree it was really achieved, and the impact it was intended to have and is likely to have.  

A question-and-answer period will follow his talk.

“Health Reform and the Nation’s Health Care Needs” will be held in LIU Brooklyn’s Kumble Theater from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 2.

“For over 20 years, Dr. Elwood has provided leadership to Schools of Health Professions nationwide,” LIU Brooklyn Health Professions Dean Barry S. Eckert said. “As a passionate and relentless advocate on Capitol Hill, Dr. Elwood has positively influenced several major pieces of legislation and become an indispensable resource of first resort to legislators and their staffs on allied health professional preparation issues.”
