We’re less than a week away from the start of our spring convening series. Starting next Tuesday in Oakland, we’ll be hosting four exciting events, Focus on Equity: Communities of Color in a Post-ACA California, to examine the future of health equity in California now that the state has fully implemented the coverage expansions of the Affordable Care Act.

Focus on Equity will take a look at some of the most pressing issues impacting the health of California’s communities of color. Participants will hear experts discuss Health for All efforts to expand health coverage to all Californians regardless of immigration status. There will also be opportunities to learn more about the integration of behavioral and physical health care and how we can incorporate equity when working to improve health care quality.

If you attend you’ll also find out how you can educate your community members and empower them to take action on these important issues. There’s still time to register, so sign up today!
