Students study healthcare policy in Washington, D.C.
Thirteen business economics and political science majors traveled to Washington, D.C. over spring break to meet with influential players and policymakers in the healthcare industry. They visited the National Archives to view the original Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution; explored the American Museum of the American Indian; attended History Makers: Women & the 116th Congress, and heard from newly elected representatives, political consultants and scholars on panels hosted by The Hill news outlet at Gallup offices. They also attended an event at the Army/Navy club organized by SUNY Oneonta's Office of Alumni Engagement. The group was hosted by John Kaelin '77, an alumnus and senior advisor for Centene Corporation, a healthcare enterprise that provides services to government-sponsored healthcare programs, focusing on underinsured and uninsured individuals.
