A Crucial Conversation on the new health care law

Do you think you really understand the new national health care law? If you’re like most people and could stand to gain a better grasp of where we are and what’s next, don’t miss a very special Crucial Conversation luncheon with Anton J. Gunn, Regional Director of the Region IV Office of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Gunn, who was appointed Regional Director last August, is among many other things, a former state legislator in South Carolina.  Region IV is HHS’s largest region in population and domestic geography and is composed of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

The event is co-sponsored by N.C. Policy Watch and the N.C. Health Access Coalition.

    Actually, Gunn used to run the nonprofit grassroots health advocacy group South Carolina Fair Share for many years and there was a strong voice for health care reform both nationally and in the tough environment of South Carolina. Politics or not, he’s committed to making things work for ordinary people.
