ITUP convenes regional and statewide issue workgroups in California. Regional workgroups are hosted throughout the state and focus on the health needs of local communities while the statewide issue workgroups focus on key health reform implementation issues facing California. While open to the public, our workgroups are mostly attended by California’s health leaders.
