Health Reform Webinar Series

Community Health Councils is hosting a webinar on April 28th that will focus on the current and future impact of the Affordable Care Act on communities of color.

The webinar is the latest in a series designed to engage CHC’s partners and their constituents in a dialogue on key health reform policies that can leverage and strengthen existing infrastructures, streamline publicly-sponsored healthcare coverage programs, and close the racial/ethnic healthcare coverage gap in underserved communities.

African Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans and Native Americans make up more than half of America’s uninsured. Communities of color have higher rates of infant mortality, disease and disability than the general population and are less likely to receive the preventive screenings, regular care and necessary medications that could prevent chronic conditions.

For more information on the April webinar, please visit the Health Reform page of our website  or contact CHC Policy Analyst Ellesse Akré.
