Alumni on the air: Vander Meer, Chapman

Two La Follette School alumni recently shared their expertise with public radio listeners. John Vander Meer (MPA ’06) discussed the difficulties facing skilled nursing facilities in Wisconsin, and Anne Chapman (MPA ’12) addressed education funding in the state.

The suspicion that the federal Affordable Care Act reduces options for patients to choose their health-care providers proves to be true, according to a new study co-authored by La Follette School professor David Weimer. However, the quality of hospitals in insurance exchange networks was as good or better than those in commercial insurance networks.

Anam explores U.S. health policy

La Follette School student Tawsif Anam has shaped his curiosity about the U.S. health-care system into a career path.

Researchers, regulators and health-care providers will explore the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act at the La Follette School's spring symposium on Thursday, April 25, from 1 to 4:30 at Union South.

The practicality of the La Follette School program has stood Grant Cummings in good stead. In his position as an analyst with the Wisconsin Legislative Fiscal Bureau, Cummings finds he has used something from nearly every course he took at La Follette, even though he has been on the job for less than a year.

Sam Austin (MIPA ’08) joined the Evidence-Based Health Policy Project at the University of Wisconsin–Madison as its director in mid-October. Austin previously served as a budget analyst with the Wisconsin Legislative Fiscal Bureau (LFB).
