Hot Off the Presses! CPEHN's 'Health Equity Forum' Newsletter

Hot Off the Presses! CPEHN's 'Health Equity Forum' Newsletter

The latest issue of our Health Equity Forum newsletter came out today and it includes several great articles and dozens of resources!

CPEHN’s Executive Director, Sarah de Guia, opens the newsletter reflecting on the results of the recent election and describes upcoming events and actions to protect and defend the Affordable Care Act! 

Our Ethnic Partner Spotlight features an article from the  Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF) detailing the potential effects of repeal on the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AA and NHPI) communities. The Asian American population in the U.S. is comparatively young, with 37 percent under the age of 26. They risk losing health insurance if repeal of the ACA includes ending the provision that allows young people to stay on their parents’ plan up to age 26. .

Priya Murthy of Services, Immigrant Rights, and Education Network (SIREN) contributed an article discussing SIREN's work post-election to protect and lift up immigrant voices. We also feature articles by Community Catalyst, California Budget & Policy Center, and Health Access California.

There’s also information on our upcoming webinar, plus dozens of great reports, resources, events, and funding opportunities. Go check it out!
