Alameda County Board of Supervisors Health Committee members Wilma Chan and Keith Carson have planned a year-long conversation series to discuss local implementation of the Affordable Care Act. The series’ goal is to help Alameda County prepare for the opportunities and challenges associated with health reform in 2014 and beyond.
The hearings will address a different issue each month, featuring experts and local community health leaders. Combining the “big picture” with local specifics and community feedback hopefully will lead to policy recommendations for Alameda County. Harbage Consulting, a health care consulting group, has been asked to facilitate these meetings, with support from the Alameda Alliance for Health.
May 21: Building a Strong Health Care Workforce
With an additional 150,000 people insured in 2018, additional workforce will be needed to ensure all Alameda County residents have adequate access to care. This session will
provide an overview of projected workforce needs, and an update on local efforts to
develop tomorrow’s diverse and capable health care workforce.
The health committee meets from 9:00am to 10:30am at the County Board of Supervisors Chambers in Room 512 of the County Administration Building at 1221 Oak Street, Downtown Oakland.
