Sr. Carol Keehan to Discuss the Affordable Care ActOctober 15, 2013

What will the Affordable Care Act mean to Catholic healthcare? Sr. Carol Keehan, D.C., will present insights on the subject in her talk, “Challenges for Catholic Healthcare in a Complex World,” at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 16, in Mabee Theater, part of Rockhurst University’s Visiting Scholar Lecture series.

Keehan, president and chief executive officer of the Catholic Health Association of the United States, will address the Affordable Care Act with relevance to the current situation that faces Catholic healthcare and what lies ahead.

Arguably, no piece of legislation has engendered as much discussion and debate during the past two decades as the Affordable Care Act. In recent months, questions regarding the law and how it intertwines with Catholic moral teaching have generated special attention. Few voices have garnered more respect across ideological lines than that of Sr. Carol Keehan.
