This CLE will place the ACA within a historic context of prior healthcare reforms and larger economic trends, as well as expound upon the more significant provisions of the ACA and early data on the outcomes of its implementation.

Previously, Blake served as an ethics senior research associate at the American Medical Association (AMA), where she drafted the AMA's Code of Medical Ethics, the primary guidance for physician professional self-regulation. At the Cleveland Clinic, she served as an advanced bioethics fellow providing bedside ethics consultation, research teaching and service in the areas of law, ethics and professionalism.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA): Early Outcomes and Legal Implications is approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for 3 substantive credits. Cost is $90 for this session or $300 for all four sessions of the Sciullo CLE series.
