CHOICE/CPAA’s commitment to advance health equity includes creating opportunities for partners to share experiences, learn from each other, and tackle common challenges together. We are also documenting evidence-based, best practices with the goal of sharing with a wider audience. It is against this backdrop that CPAA will organize its first of two region wide health equity discussions on January 14, 2022.
While this event, under the theme, Anchoring Strong, Healthier and Prosperous Communities on Health Equity, will bring together the seventeen partners that received CPAA funding, it is open to CHOICE and CPAA fraternity that includes staff and board members, and all our partners, included but not limited to those engaged in ongoing Community CarePort and Washington Care Connect, and the Medicaid Transformation Project. Efforts will be made to mobilize and invite other stakeholders to attend and participate in the event. This event will highlight our work and lay the foundation for a follow up meeting later in the year.
This virtual event features two keynote speakers: Lisa Wadell, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer of the CDC Foundation; and Vincent Perez, Executive Director of The Equity Institute. The event will be emceed by Kurt, O'Brien, Director of Organization Development and Training for University of Washington's School of Public Health.
