Efforts to dismantle and undermine the Affordable Care Act, and the community prevention provisions in particular, are increasing. The American Public Health Association, PolicyLink, Prevention Institute, Public Health Institute and Trust for America's Health invite you to join a discussion concerning how community, public health and healthcare leaders can take focused action to protect community prevention building up to the March anniversary of passage of the Affordable Care Act.

The Web Forum will:

  • Provide concrete action steps that community advocates can take to support and protect community prevention and the Affordable Care Act;
  • Discuss strategies that individuals and organizations can use to describe the value and benefit of investing resources in community prevention and wellness in local communities;
  • Share an update from Senator Harkin’s office on threats to community prevention within HR1 and outline actions needed to educate Congress on the importance of the Affordable Care Act;
  • Provide a prioritized list of target legislators that advocates can contact to make the case for prevention.

Sponsored by American Public Health Association, PolicyLink, Prevention Institute, Public Health Institute and Trust for America's Health

Special Guest Speakers:

Mayra Alvarez, Director of Public Health Policy, Office of Health Reform, Health and Human Services

Adrienne Hallett, Professional Staff, Senate Committee on Appropriations, Labor/HHS Subcommittee, Office of United States Senator Tom Harkin
