Jen DeVoe for CNN
Jen DeVoe, MD, DPhil, was asked by CNN Opinion to write an editorial on Obamacare. Her op-ed piece “Gutting Obamacare is playing with Lives” was posted at 11:10 a.m. EDT (8:10 a.m. PST) on Friday, July 25. Within two hours, there were more than 300 comments. As of 4:30 p.m. Monday, July 28, there were 2,110 comments.
Dr. DeVoe has been on CNN’s expert list for several years, thanks to her research on access to health care, disparities in care and the impact of practice and policy interventions on vulnerable populations. She has been interviewed by CNN several times, primarily on issues related to the Affordable Care Act.
At about 11 a.m. Tuesday, July 22, Dr. DeVoe received a call from CNN, asking if she would write an op-ed piece about the impact of Obamacare on the uninsured.
