The Brookings Institution: Building inclusive infrastructure: How the built environment limits pathways to opportunity, and what we can do about it

  • Tuesday, May 15th; 8:00 am - 11:30 am; Washington, DC
  • Infrastructure is essential to the everyday workings of the American economy. Our roads, rails, pipes, and cables connect people to opportunity, allow companies to grow, and influence our environmental health. Too often, however, debate on infrastructure focuses exclusively on the physical quality of our networks and the price tags associated with new projects. In this confounding process, too little attention is given to whether our infrastructure systems can address vital, widespread challenges such as economic inequality, reducing environmental risk, or managing rapid technological change. As many infrastructure systems are reaching the end of their useful life and governments at all levels are considering massive new investments, there is now prime opportunity to reconsider the shared outcomes we aim to advance through built environment policies. As part of Infrastructure Week 2018, The Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings will convene a group of public, private, and civic thought leaders to discuss how our shared economic, social, and environmental challenges look from an infrastructure perspective—and present the most promising innovations to help address them. Following the panel discussions, speakers will take questions from the audience.

Bipartisan Policy Center: Using Medicare to Improve Chronic Care: Opportunities and Challenges

  • Wednesday, May 23rd; 9:30 am - 11:00 am; Washington, DC
  • The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 includes significant provisions that offer hope to people living with disabilities or chronic illness by reshaping coverage and payment under Medicare. Now we have to make sure the law is implemented to create meaningful change. Join us on May 23 as we explore how key provisions of the Act could be implemented to improve care for patients with multiple chronic conditions. Panel discussions will focus on the congressional intent of the law and the main issues that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services should consider in finalizing its rules associated with the legislation.
