Do You Have Questions about the Affordable Care Act in the Current Political Environment, So Do We?
Date: October 19, 2017 Time: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Event Description Open Door Health Center presents a lunch and learn for surrounding area organizations to attend that will be focused around understanding and discussing how the current political environment is affecting healthcare/the affordable care act. For approximately the first hour, Maximillian Boykin, the community advocacy and social justice manager from AIDS Foundation of Chicago will give a presentation about the current healthcare policies on the state and federal level and how it impacts citizens, such as vulnerable populations. There will also be a representative from either Open Door Health Center or AIDS Foundation of Chicago to talk about the duties and benefits of having a medical benefits coordinator present in an organization as well as enrollment. The second part of the presentation will be a roundtable structure where all organizations present can discuss their thoughts about the information that they just received as well as how they have dealt with the uncertainties regarding healthcare in their organizations. Suggestions and thoughts about how our community can be better served are always welcome! All in all, we need to remain vigilant about what our politicians are doing and advocate for those that need and deserve a voice in public policy. We hope you can attend this Lunch and Learn!
