Healthcare law subject of webinar for LGBTs
From a news release

Washington, D.C. — The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and the Center for American Progress are marking the second anniversary of the federal health care reform law by spotlighting its impact on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, or LGBT, people and their families. The groups are holding a March 22 webinar, "Learn Your Power: How the Affordable Care Act Helps LGBT Americans," with representatives from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and One Colorado, Colorado's statewide LGBT equality organization, to address this critical issue.

Findings from reports such as "Injustice at Every Turn: A Report of the National Transgender Discrimination Survey" and "How to Close the LGBT Health Disparities Gap" repeatedly show that LGBT people face a higher incidence of health disparities and greater discrimination in health care settings across their lifespan. There are also fewer financial and community resources to tackle the serious health issues facing LGBT people and their families, making health care reform even more important. According to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the Affordable Care Act may represent the strongest foundation our nation has ever created to begin closing LGBT health disparities.

Please join Mayra Alvarez, director of public health policy in the HHS Office of Health Reform; Darlene Nipper, deputy executive director at the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force; Kellan Baker, Health Policy Analyst at the Center for American Progress; and Brad Clark, executive director at One Colorado, to discuss how the LGBT community can best utilize the benefits offered by the new health care reform law.

WHAT:

Webinar to outline changes brought about by the Affordable Care Act and the ways in which LGBT people can maximize the benefits of the law for themselves, their families, and their communities.

WHO:

Mayra Alvarez, Director of Public Health Policy, HHS Office of Health Reform

Darlene Nipper, Deputy Executive Director, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force

Kellan Baker, Health Policy Analyst, Center for American Progress

Brad Clark, Executive Director, One Colorado

WHEN:

Thursday, March 22, 2012

2:00 p.m. — 3:00 p.m. EDT

RSVP:
