This panel discussion will provide the current state of Black women’s health and the impact of current health policies. Specifically, the conversation will center around the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the various repeal efforts. Specifically, the conversation will include discussions on:
● the ways ACA has improved the health of Black women
● the harms that could result from a repeal of the ACA
● the importance of civic engagement in Black women’s health
We aim to make this an ongoing conversation about the need to address the impact of policy on Black women’s health as a whole, as well as how Black women’s health can be a part of the conversation when developing policies. This briefing features several stakeholders in the health care reform debate, from consumers to policy experts to health plans and hospital systems. This event is open to Members of Congress, congressional staff, and the general public.
