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.
