August General Coalition Meeting
How does health care reform through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) affect our communities? What is it, what was changed by the U.S. Supreme Court decision in June, and what still needs to be addressed? What is the uninsurance rate for Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders? What impact does the ACA has for persons living with AIDS?
As underserved communities, LGBT, API, and other POC communities have often faced critical health disparities and the ACA is a good start to close that gap.
This month, Doreena Wong, API Equality-LA Co-Chair as well as the Project Director of the Asian Pacific American Legal Center's Health Access Project, and Eric Gutierrez, the Health Policy Director of the LA Gay and Lesbian Center, will speak about the ACA's impact on our communities and the work that still needs to be done to fully ensure that our communities have access to affordable, high quality health care.
As we will be serving a light dinner, RSVP IS REQUIRED.
