ABOUT THE CONVENING
Over 3.5 million Californians have enrolled in new coverage options since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, yet persistent health disparities remain among communities of color, immigrants, and Limited English Proficient populations. Join the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network and OnTrack Program Resources, Inc., to discuss opportunities to advance health equity both locally and statewide on the following topics:
- Health for All efforts to provide health coverage to immigrants
- Integration of behavioral health and primary care
- Equity and health care quality
The convening will provide participants with the opportunity to:
- Hear updates on key policy issues to advance equity for communities of color in health coverage
- Learn about key statewide legislative proposals and make the connection to local advocacy efforts
- Discuss advocacy and mobilization efforts to advance policy locally and statewide
You can follow the conversation on Twitter at #FocusOnEquity. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Interpretation available by request.
In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, CPEHN will not be providing any handouts at the event, including PowerPoint presentations. Handouts will be available on this page a few days before the convening. A participant list will be emailed after the event.
This convening is FREE.
