2015 Symposium
THE PUBLIC HEALTH CARE LEGACY
OF HARRY S. TRUMAN

red sepertor
May 15-16, 2015
Thirteenth Annual Legacy Symposium
Harry S. Truman Little White House
Key West, Florida

Program Chair:
Dr. Michael Devine, former Executive Director of the Truman Library

Program Description:
Universal healthcare was supported by President Teddy Roosevelt – it failed! President Harry S. Truman took up the challenge to provide national healthcare in 1946 – it also failed!

In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson led the effort to pass Medicare, a National Healthcare program for those 65 and older. The bill was signed at the Truman Library and made one senior citizen very happy. Yet the challenge remains with many Americans uninsured.

In 2010 the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, offered yet another solution. Praised as an important first step by some, it remains widely opposed by Republicans. Come join us to learn how we got here and some ideas of where we might go in the future.
