Using her expertise in health policy, Sarah Kliff gives audiences an inside look at the complex and constantly-changing battle over the Affordable Care Act — and what that means for the future of the American health care system.

  
What’s Next: the Future of Health Policy in Uncertain Times

Sarah Kliff gives the audience an inside look at the topic she spends her time reporting on: Republicans’ plans to repeal and replace Obamacare. She is up-to-date on the latest twists and turns and walks her audience through where the Affordable Care Act is today, what works and what doesn’t, and how the different Republican plans stack up against it. Audiences will leave with a solid understanding of how Republicans want to change health care, and who their plans will benefit or hurt.

What a Foot Injury Taught Me About American Health Care

Sarah Kliff spends most of her time reporting on the American healthcare system. But in 2015, she found herself learning about healthcare from a different vantage point: as a patient with a chronic foot injury that no doctor could seem to fix. In a widely-read essay for vox.com, Kliff wrote that she learned an important lesson about the healthcare system: that medicine places an immense burden on patients to do much of the work of coordinating their own care. Kliff weaves together personal narrative and her healthcare reporting to explain how patients became the unpaid cog in the American healthcare system — and what type of changes at hospitals and doctors’ offices can change that. For those who provide healthcare, this is an eye-opening look into the challenges their patients can often face.
