2017 ITUP Regional Workgroups!
|August 11, 2017||Posted by Beth Abel under Special Features|
ITUP recently hosted regional workgroups on the Central Coast and in Orange County, and connected with over 50 health care leaders. The discussions on health care reform and immigration were informative and insightful. Eight more regional workgroups are scheduled this year, so there’s still time to join the conversation! ITUP workgroups bring together local leaders for constructive dialogue, problem-solving and identification of creative policy solutions that expand access and improve the health of Californians.
Workgroup findings inform ITUP’s policy work and future convenings, including the ITUP annual statewide conference held each February in Sacramento.
This year, the workgroups will discuss region-specific opportunities and challenges related to the following:
- Timely updates and insights on federal threats and rollbacks of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and the implications for the state’s health reform progress (see related ITUP publications here);
- The chilling effect of changes in federal immigration policy on immigrant communities accessing coverage and care, and local innovations to address immigrant health needs in these uncertain times (see related ITUP publications here); and
- Continuing state and local efforts to improve health care access, quality and value
