|July 12, 2013||Posted by ITUP under Special Features||
ITUP hosted a series of educational trainings entitled ObamaCare 101: An Educational Training on the Affordable Care Act (ACA). During the trainings, ITUP discussed key components of the ACA and provided a comprehensive overview of how health coverage will change in California under health reform. The trainings were held around Los Angeles County for CCALAC (Community Clinics Association of Los Angeles County) member clinic’s frontline staff, other medical providers and community based organizations. This page is a resource for those who attended the trainings and others who find it useful. Another round of trainings will be held in the spring. Information about the spring trainings will be posted as it becomes available. As always, you can email the ITUP team at email@example.com with questions.
