Action on Disability within Ethnic Communities, in partnership with Mental Illness Fellowship Victoria - free interactive workshop:  Reducing the Stigma of Mental Illness within Ethnic Communities 




May 2 Live, Interactive Webcast To Focus On Children’s Coverage and Health Disparities. On Wednesday, May 2, 2007 at 1 p.m. ET, the Kaiser Family Foundation will host an interactive webcast to discuss racial/ethnic disparities in children’s health, and how efforts to expand health coverage can reduce these inequalities. The discussion is the latest in the bi-monthly live webcast series, "Today's Topics In Health Disparities," which is devoted to addressing a range of issues relating to health and health care disparities in the United States. WHAT: The next discussion in the online series is "Disparities in Child Health: Why are Expansions in Coverage Important?" Approximately 60% of the nation’s 9 million uninsured children are African American, Latino, Asian, or from other populations of color. The panel will discuss how the lack of coverage affects disparities in children's access to quality health care, as well as national and state efforts underway to expand coverage to children and their parents. WHO: Kaiser Family Foundation senior health policy analyst, Cara James, will moderate the discussion. Panelists will include:

  • Gail Christopher, D.N., vice president and director of the Health Policy Institute, The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies
  • Richard Figueroa, health advisor to California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-Calif.)
  • Cindy Mann, J.D., executive director, Center for Children and Families, Georgetown University
