On Wednesday, Nov. 4, the Association of Black Faculty, Administrators and Staff (ABFAS) will hold a brown bag community luncheon that will feature a roundtable discussion titled “Healthcare Reform and Its Impact on the African American Community.”

The session will be held in the Johnson Center Paul Robeson Room, 240A, beginning promptly at 11:30 a.m. and concluding at 1 p.m. This event is open to all interested members of the Mason community.

The discussion will be facilitated by Charlene Y. Douglas, associate professor in the College of Health and Human Services.

According to ABFAS, the intention behind the discussion is to find out more information from an expert in the field and talk candidly among co-workers about the health care system in a nonpoliticized and nonpartisan setting.

In addition, the event furthers the organization’s commitment to highlighting the many accomplished colleagues within the campus community in their respective areas of expertise.
