SHRM sponsored a National Journal Group summit called “Healthcare: A 6-Month Checkup.”

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and a panel of experts provided their assessment of the new health care reform law. 

The summit looked at steps the Obama administration is taking to implement the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act, how Americans view the new law, and the politics surrounding health care reform as the Nov. 2 mid-term elections draw near.
