New Locations, Same Great Events!

New Locations, Same Great Events!

Over the past few weeks we’ve highlighted a couple exciting upcoming events, CPEHN’s Focus on Equity: Communities of Color in a Post-ACA California convening in the Inland Empire on June 5th, and the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) and the Blue Shield of California Foundation’s (BSCF) briefing on the ACA in California on May 28th in Sacramento. Both of these events have changed locations.

First, our Inland Empire convening, cohosted by the California Partnership and the Community Clinic Association of San Bernardino County, will now be June 5th in Riverside at the United Domestic Workers Community Room, 3600 Lime Street, Suite 421. The agenda will be the same and we are excited to discuss Health for All efforts to extend coverage to California’s immigrant population, behavioral health integration, and including equity when considering ways to improve quality of care. We’d also like to hear from residents in the Inland Empire about the unique health needs your communities face. Register today and we can work together to improve health in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.

The KFF and BSCF briefing will still be in Sacramento on May 28th, but will now be at The Citizen Hotel, Metropolitan Terrace, 926 J Street, 7th floor. The event will still feature presentations from state officials, experts, and advocates on California’s experience implementing the Affordable Care Act. CPEHN’s Executive Director, Sarah de Guia, will participate on a panel discussing how the law’s coverage expansions have impacted the state’s communities of color and what still needs to be done to ensure access to health care for the remaining uninsured. The briefing coincides with the release of a new report, Coverage Expansions and the Remaining Uninsured: A Look at California During Year One of ACA Implementation, based on the latest round of KFF’s Survey of Low-Income Americans and the ACA. Register today to reserve your spot.

These two events will help highlight the health needs of California’s communities of color. Check back at Voices for Health Equity for information on more events in the future.
