Two Call-In Events from the National Coalition for LGBT Health

The National Coalition for LGBT Health leads two major events for National LGBT Health Awareness Week.

On Thursday, 3/22, 12-1pm “Learn Your Power: How the Affordable Care Act Helps LGBT Americans”: a discussion on how the health care reform law benefits the LGBT community. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and the Center for American Progress are marking the second anniversary of the federal health care reform law by spotlighting its impact on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people and their families. The groups are holding a March 22 webinar, Learn Your Power: How the Affordable Care Act Helps LGBT Americans, with representatives from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and One Colorado, Colorado’s statewide LGBT equality organization, to address this critical issue.

Please join Mayra Alvarez, Director of Public Health Policy in the Office of Health Reform at HHS; Darlene Nipper, Deputy Executive Director at the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force; Kellan Baker, Health Policy Analyst at the Center for American Progress; and Brad Clark, Executive Director at One Colorado, to discuss how the LGBT community can best utilize the benefits offered by the new health care reform law.
