Description

VAFCC 2018 Regional Workshop Series

Federal and State Health Care Policy - The Impact on Free Clinics

Health care policy continues to change as well as do the perspective of our elected officials and their plans on how to address health care in the United States.  This workshop will discuss how health care is changing at the federal level and what impact these changes can have on free clinics, nonprofits and uninsured, low-income Americans. We will also discuss the outcomes and impacts of the 2018 General Assembly Session.

Lunch will be provided. 

This workshop is open to both free clinic staff and volunteers and board members.
