Join Marquette Civic Dialogues for a discussion with leading scholar and University of Chicago Professor Dr. Colleen Grogan about the current state of health care in America on Oct. 23 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the AMU Lunda Room.

Following Grogan’s talk, she’ll be joined by Marquette’s Dr. Sue Giaimo, adjunct associate professor of political science, and Dr. Philip Rocco, associate professor of political science, for a deeper dive into the issues, accepting questions from the audience as time permits.

Grogan is the Deborah R. and Edgar D. Jannotta Professor at the University of Chicago in the Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice. Grogan’s research focuses on health policy and politics with a primary focus on the US health care system and its complex entitlement programs. Her new book, “Grow and Hide: The History of America’s Health Care State,” documents the extent of public provision in developing the U.S. health care system, and shows how public discourse hid the role of government and public funding from 1860 to present.
