The Policy Café breakfast series brings together clinics, policymakers, community leaders, researchers and other stakeholders for quarterly discussions on the issues impacting Los Angeles County’s health care landscape. From sessions on state issues to debates at the federal level, and discussions on life after health care reform, the series drives dialogue on today’s hot topics. No podium. No PowerPoint. Just frank conversation.
The Path Forward: Advancing Progressive Health Policy in Turbulent Times
Senator Holly Mitchell
Chair of the Senate Budget Committee
Senate District 30
Governor Newsom unveiled a bold state budget on January 10, 2019. It sets forth several priorities, including expanding access to health care, affordable housing, early childhood and higher education, as well as relieving poverty and homelessness, and investing in health care workforce. While progressive policies continue to be threatened at the federal level, California policymakers and advocates remain energized to expand access to comprehensive services and supports.
Join Senator Holly Mitchell, Chair of the Senate Budget Committee, as she provides her take on the health and social services landscape in California, including the role of community clinics. How can clinics and elected officials work together to preserve gains achieved by the Affordable Care Act, while continuing to expand access to comprehensive care?
This cafe will take place on Friday, March 8, 2019, from 8:30-10:30am at the California Community Foundation – Joan Palevsky Conference Room (281 South Figueroa Street, Suite 100, Los Angeles, CA 90012).
