ITUP Conference Less Than 20 Days Away!
|January 13, 2011||Posted by ITUP under Blog||
ITUP’s 15th Annual Conference, FROM REFORM TO REALITY: Building Better Systems of Care in California, is fast approaching.
Our Awards & Networking Dinner will take place on February 1st (6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.) at the Sacramento Convention Center (Room 308). And the Conference itself is the following day, February 2,(8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) also at the Convention Center (Rooms 301-310).
Be sure to REGISTER TODAY. Early-Bird registration ends next Wednesday, Jan. 19th!
Each February, ITUP brings together more than 400 health care leaders from across the state, including health plans, providers, advocates, employers, unions, state and local elected officials and government employees. As in past years, this ITUP Conference will be the state’s largest annual gathering of health policy professionals and practitioners.
And this will be a particularly important and meaningful Conference. With the passage of the federal health reform in March of last year, our state’s recent enactment of the Health Benefit Exchange, and federal approval of the country’s most robust 1115 Medicaid Waiver, this is a uniquely promising time for health policy in California.
But with the state facing a $28 billion budget deficit, it is also a moment fraught with difficulties and challenges. We hope that bringing diverse stakeholders and viewpoints together can help promote efficient and sustainable implementation of health reform in a fiscally responsible and effective way for California.
Tomorrow, I’ll outline our various panels and esteemed panelists as well as reveal our key note speakers. Before then, be sure to register!
