The Connecticut Mirror is known for its fantastic coverage of health care issues in the state. That’s why we will be attending the Small State, Big Debate: Race they are holding on October 6, 2015.
It is a much needed opportunity to have an open and meaningful discussion about a major issue in health care. Below are the details.
We hope to see you there!

ABOUT: The Affordable Care Act enrollment periods have received mixed results with certain populations in terms of race, ethnicity and geography. Consistent with state and federal government data, organizations and foundations like the Commonwealth Fund find that Latinos continue to have the highest uninsured rates among major U.S. racial or ethnic groups.
What lies ahead and what are the lessons learned that will set the pace for the next five years in Connecticut, New England and nationally?
