Caroline Wessel, Program Director for Catholic Charities presents "Covered California - Imperial County Outreach Strategy" at the AHF ACA Workshop.

About the Event:
To help those in Imperial County prepare for how the Affordable Care Act will impact work the community, Alliance Healthcare Foundation hosted a workshop on Sept. 11, 2013 at the San Diego Gas & Electric Renewable Energy Resource Center in Imperial County. In this workshop, we explored Covered California enrollment with an overview of multiple health plans and eligibility, discussed the community clinic perspective, and considered its potential impact on the underserved in Imperial County. This workshop was free and included a healthy lunch for all attendees.
