On the evening of April 8, 2015, CHAS was honored to host Ronald Haskins from The Brookings Insitute as a "Special Event" lecturer. Ron is a reknowned policy expert and came to provide deeper insight into his book, "Show Me the Evidence!," a recounting of his involvement with President Obama's administration and the Affordable Care Act. Additionally, he shared his long hisotry of expertise interacting within the political landscape of Washington, D.C. and signed book copies afterwards.
