Former HHS Secretary Leaves Legacy of Social Change, Says Opinion Piece

Sara Rosenbaum, the Harold and Jane Hirsh Professor of Health Law and Policy, has published on opinion piece in The Hatchet on the recent resignation of the Former U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. The piece notes that commentators opposed to the Affordable Care Act have been quick to criticize Sebelius for the rocky beginnings of health reform. But Rosenbaum points out that Sebelius worked tirelessly on the front lines to “turn an abstract piece of legislation into actual coverage.” She goes on to say that Sebelius “should be remembered for pushing through one of the most important pieces of legislation in this new millennium.”
