Smith Soc Treks, the Adam Smith Society's ongoing series of weekend-long, destination-based seminars, opened our Spring 2017 program this past weekend. From March 9th through 12th, a select group of Smith Soc student and professional members met with experts in the field of health care policy. With a program entitled, "Rebooting Health Care," the Treks series embraced a timely topic: discussions recently began in Congress and in the media over the proposed American Health Care Act (AHCA).
