WASHINGTON, DC – From that organization that holds the annual Minority Health Care Journalism Training Conference comes Health Action 2010. According to Families USA,
At this conference you’ll:
* Hear powerful speeches from national leaders and the Administration
* Learn more about the legislation, implementation timelines, and next steps for states
* Share field strategies and strengthen your core advocacy capacities
* Network with state and local consumer health advocates from across the country
* Enjoy the political satire of the Capitol Steps and have fun!
Who Should Come:
Progressive health advocates and people representing diverse constituencies—seniors, children, communities of color, labor, religious communities, people with disabilities, immigrants—concerned about health reform.
Health Action 2010 begins with a Welcome Reception on Wednesday, January 27, from 7-10pm. The conference officially opens on Thursday, January 28, at 9am and ends on Saturday, January 30, at 2:30pm. There is a Special Early Bird Registration of $395 available until Thursday, December 31. After that, registration is $445. This fee includes three continental breakfasts, 3 lunches, afternoon snacks, music and political satire by The Capitol Steps, a thumb drive chock full of resources—and a great meeting of like-minded people, working for justice and health care for all of us. The conference is being held at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.
The conference is right around the corner, so if you’re interested I suggest you visit their website and register right away! Families USA held a superb journalism training conference on Minority Health Care back in October of this year and I heard through the grapevine that there will be a lecture on American Indian health at Health Action 2010, so you know I’ll be there! 😉
