An introductory briefing on the budget and how it intertwines with health policy

Please join us for lunch at our upcoming Congressional Health Policy Education Program event in RHOB 2043. Lunch will be provided. Please feel free to share this invite with any health care staffer you think would be interested.

During the event, Congressional health staff will have the opportunity to dive into health care policy as it relates to the federal budget.

Panelists include:

Drew Gonshorowski is Paragon’s Senior Research Fellow. He has a decade of experience conducting quantitative research and building models examining health policy and entitlement programs. Prior to joining Paragon, Drew worked in The Center for Data Analysis (CDA) at The Heritage Foundation. At CDA, he built and maintained models and databases that were used to provide reviews of legislation for members of Congress, to supply data and analysis for news organizations, as well as to inform the work of other analysts.
