What's Next for Children's Health?
Sept. 8, 2017
10 - 11:30 a.m.
In the '90s, nearly two million of California's children did not have health insurance. Now, after decades of work on the federal, state and local levels, California is closer than ever to ensuring that all children have health care. Yet, these significant advancements are in jeopardy as the federal administration discusses policies that could dismantle much of the progress made.
Please join us for a conversation around children's health and the policies that affect it. Speakers include Maryjane Puffer, executive director, The Los Angeles Trust for Children's Health, and Richard Figueroa, health and human services director, California Endowment, who will discuss how pivotal changes in funding for the health care industry are impacting the trajectory of our children's success.
