CPCA’s Health Care Ambassador Program

In August, our friends at the California Primary Care Association (CPCA) began a health reform education and advocacy training initiative called the Health Care Ambassador Program.

The campaign is focused on training community clinics, health centers, their staff and clinicians, about the provisions of the PPACA that affect their patients and the communities they serve.

Over the next four years, individual Ambassadors will participate in targeted webinars, and will receive ongoing information and resources to assist them in better understanding and answering simple questions about the new health law as it is implemented.

To date, CPCA has trained 837 Health Care Ambassadors who have in turn reached out to about 2,500 individuals. Upcoming trainings to be held in December include “Release of new health center funding” and “Health reform training for AmeriCorps members working with CCHCs.”
