North Rural Regional Workgroup (#2 - Bayside) 

The 2017 season of ITUP regional workgroups is upon us. ITUP regional workgroups bring together local leaders to engage in constructive dialogue, problem solving and identification of creative policy solutions that expand access and improve the health of Californians.

Workgroup findings inform ITUP's policy work and future convenings, including the ITUP annual statewide conference held each February in Sacramento.

This year, the workgroups will discuss region-specific opportunities and challenges related to the following:

  • Timely updates and insights on federal threats and rollbacks of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and the implications for the state’s health reform progress (See related ITUP publications here);
  • The chilling effect of changes in federal immigration policy on immigrant communities accessing coverage and care, and local innovations to address immigrant health needs in these uncertain times (See related ITUP publications here); and
  • Continuing state and local efforts to improve health care access, quality and value.
