NAACP Richmond Branch Panel: Health Equity Starts Here
Women’s Health Care and the Importance of Community Voices
NAACP Richmond Branch is partnering with local civil rights leaders and women’s health equity advocates to host a discussion on health care policy and the importance of community voices to achieve health equality for all Virginias including a healthy life and access to high-quality, affordable health care.
Before the healthcare debate continues on the national stage, join us in Richmond the evening of August 22nd for an interactive dialogue to highlight the importance of considering women’s health and local community impact when it comes to federal health care policy, hear from civil rights leaders about the current state of health care, and learn how advocates are working to support the goal of addressing inequities in health outcomes and access.
Speakers include: Delta Bowers, President, Richmond Chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black women, Monica Hutchinson, Communications Chair at Henrico NAACP and Political Team Organizing Lead with New Virginia Majority for the Richmond area, and Beverly Ross, Psychiatric Clinical Nurse Specialist and Formerly the Women's Veterans Program Manager at McGuire VA Medical Center.
