Please join Community Catalyst for the latest in our Health Equity call series.

Advancing Health Reform by Inclusion: Engaging Communities of Color in Creating Policy Change

Tuesday, June 19, 2012 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern Time
Register here by Friday, June 15, 2012

The best change occurs when the communities most affected are involved. Moving toward health equity requires full participation by communities of color in the policy making process and implementation of the Affordable Care Act. We conducted an assessment to identify emerging and effective ways state consumer health advocates and community-based organizations are engaging communities of color in creating policy change to advance the ACA.

On this call we will:

  • Share the findings from our¬†research, including best practices used by state and local advocates in five states Alabama, Michigan, Minnesota, New York and Oregon
  • Hear from advocates in New York and Minnesota about the work in their work to advance health equity
  • Offer our recommendations for state and national organizations and funders

Please RSVP by Friday, June 15, 2012

If you have any questions, please contact Quynh Chi Nguyen, Health Equity Team Lead at qnguyen@communitycatalyst.org (617-275-2872)
