Health, Law, and Justice JBS students had the opportunity to visit the Massachusetts State House and meet with key legislators and staff members in state health policy.
We learned about current bills before the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing and the Joint Committee on Public Health, as well as the process of passing 2012’s Chapter 224. The students are now experts on Chapter 224, having examined it in class and having visited the Health Policy Commission.
To finish an exciting day, the HLJ students and faculty toured our beautiful and historic State House. We saw the Sacred Cod in the House of Representatives, murals depicting our state’s fascinating history–even Governor Baker’s office! An exciting day for our JBS.
