Inspiration, Learning and Community at Health Action 2016 

By Rosana Garcia 

In early February, I packed my bags and headed south on the train to DC for the three-day Families USA Health Action 2016 Conference.

This was my first year at Health Action.  I registered as an Emerging Professional, meaning that I am new to health justice work.  While I have been at the Foundation for a little over a year, this pales in comparison to those advocates who have been in the health reform trenches for decades.

It is a group based not on age, but experience, and is a great network of advocates committed to health justice, but still finding our way on the steep learning curve that is health reform.

As a Health Action newbie, everything was fascinating.  From the plenaries to the individual workshops, I had the benefit of learning in a community of like-minded people.
