Webinar Announcement: Peer Support in U.S. Health Reform
Please join Peers for Progress and National Council of La Raza for a webinar on March 28th featuring Maggie Morgan and Amy Katzen from the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation at Harvard Law School. This interactive webinar will provide an overview of:
- Affordable Care Act (ACA) in the U.S., and
- Opportunities it offers for the work of peer supporters (community health workers, promotores de salud, health coaches, etc.) and others engaged in the treatment or prevention of chronic conditions such as diabetes.
Ms. Morgan and Ms. Katzen are part of a team working with the Together on Diabetes Initiative to develop strategic law and policy reform initiatives aimed at strengthening state-based efforts to improve access to diabetes treatment and prevention services.
Many network members may be aware of opportunities for funding peer support programs that we don’t know of yet, so we will reserve time during the webinar for people to share these. We’re particularly interested in any experiences network members have with state Medicaid programs.
