Mock HMO to be featured at meeting of new student group EPIHC@Harvard, a new undergraduate group dedicated to "Exploring Policy In Health Care," will host the creators of HMO Black for a press conference on the current state of health care. The conference will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 18, at 7:30 p.m. in Emerson 105.
