April 2015 Focus on Equity: Communities of Color in a Post-ACA California

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 CPEHN and our partners for Focus on Equity: Communities of Color in a Post-ACA California, as we highlight opportunities to advance equity in 2015 and beyond. Topics will include:

* Health for All
* Integration of behavioral health in primary care
* The importance of equity in measuring the quality of health care

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 legislative proposals
* Discuss advocacy and mobilization efforts to advance policy

Registration is $25 for the General Public, $10 for CPEHN Network Members. The Network Member discount code is: 4EQUITY
