The Other 'A' in the Affordable Care Act: Accountability in Achieving Health Equity

142nd APHA Annual Meeting and Exposition (November 15 - November 19, 2014): http://www.apha.org/events-and-meetings/annual
Tuesday, November 18, 2014: 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Health care coverage is the beginning, not the end. Real connections to community are needed. Population management and social movements isolated from a health equity lens cannot activate community empowerment. The IOM Roundtable harvests lessons for wider community dissemination and potential for scalability and to inform public policy.
Session Objectives: Discuss the importance of keeping a focus on achieving health equity in the aftermath of the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Identify the potential of social movement and community connections for activating community empowerment.
