    About the Lecture
    It is hardly surprising that money plays a role in lawmaking. However, it may come as a surprise how central a role money plays and the extent of its impact on legislative choices. Professor Timothy Westmoreland will examine how the congressional budget process has influenced health policy debates, including recent debates regarding the Affordable Care Act and efforts to repeal and replace it.

    Professor Westmoreland is a highly regarded expert on issues of public health and health finance policy. He served for many years as Counsel to the Subcommittee on Health and the Environment in the U.S. House of Representatives and later as the Director of the Medicaid program at HCFA. He also served as counsel to the Koop-Kessler Advisory Committee on Tobacco Policy and Public Health and as an advisor to both the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. He has also been the recipient of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Investigator in Health Policy Award, working on budget process and health policy.

    Sponsored by the Center for Health, Science & Public Policy
