About the Program
The Medicaid Insights Colloquium, or MIC, is a virtual series that features current Medicaid research and key policy issues from leaders in Medicaid policy.
Academic and non-academic scholars, as well as national leaders in Medicaid policy across public and private sectors lead individual sessions to share their insights. The sessions create feedback loops between researchers and the Medicaid policy community to guide policy-relevant areas of study and support evidence-based policymaking.
The MIC program is hosted by the Center for Health Systems Effectiveness at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, OR, and is produced in collaboration with:
Sarah Gordon. Assistant professor in the Department of Health Law, Policy & Management at the Boston University School of Public Health and Co-Director of the BU Medicaid Policy Lab
John McConnell. Director of the Center for Health Systems Effectiveness and Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University
Jamila Michener. Associate professor of Government and Public Policy at Cornell University,
co-director of the Cornell Center for Health Equity, Co-director of the Politics of Race, Immigration, Class & Ethnicity Initiative (PRICE), and board chair of the Cornell Prison Education Program
