Jim Koppel on Health Care Reform Panel


January 1, 2011

On March 29, 2010, hosted by the Open Cities Health Center, CDF-Minnesota Director Jim Koppel joined a roundtable panel that discussed the recently passed health care reform law.  Included on the panel were U.S. Senator Al Franken; Sue Abderholden, Exec. Dir. NAMI MN; and Dorii Gbolo, CEO/Exec. Dir. Open Cities Health Center;.  Koppel said the new law will ensure that 95 percent of the nation’s children have coverage, improve coverage for foster youth, and allow a family to keep children on their health policy until age 26, something that is especially important for newly graduated college students who are finding it difficult to crack the job market.
