The Emory Chapter of Physicians for Human Rights in conjunction with Emory Medical Alliance is hosting a lunch time conversation this Tuesday, July 23rd at Noon in Room 153A of the Emory School of Medicine building.
Snacks will be provided (hopefully lunch- still working out the funding)
The conversation will center around the state of asylum seekers along the U.S.-Mexico boarder including a brief explanation of the asylum process but focusing mainly on the current conditions created by government policy, cartels, and religious influence (including its effect on the LGBTQ+ community) .
We will be Skyping in an expert who lives on the Mexican side of The Border and will conclude the conversation with ways in which we as a community can aid asylum seekers in Atlanta.
If you have any questions feel free to email Harrison.
Georgians for a Healthy Future and Georgia Women bring you A Georgia Women Health Care Salon on Georgia’s Patients First Act. We will provide information to help Georgians better understand Medicaid, who is covered by the program, how it benefits the state, as well as develop skills to become strong health care advocates. Attendees will also learn about grassroots strategies to help influence and shape Georgia’s plans for health coverage under the public comment periods for the 1115 and 1332 waivers allowed under SB 106, the Patients First Act.
1) How will Georgia’s partial Medicaid Expansion be accomplished?
2) How do we advocate in light of Georgia’s Patients First Act?
Please see additional information on the Georigans for a Health Future website.
