TOWN HALL ON INCLUSIVE HEALTHCARE IN UC SYSTEM
Join us for this timely Town Hall on University of California healthcare affiliations with Senator Scott Wiener on Monday, April 26, 2021 from 5-6pm PT!
In February 2021, Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) introduced Senate Bill 379, the Equitable and Inclusive UC Healthcare Act. The bill ensures that University of California Health System (UC Health) contracts with healthcare facilities that allow UC staff practicing in those facilities to provide a full range of healthcare services. Speakers will address why the legislation introduced as well as current concerns regarding inclusive healthcare. What is the status of UC contracts with affiliated organizations? Are reproductive healthcare services and LGBTQ affirming care supported and protected by UC proposed affiliations and contracts? Are the affiliated organizations aligned with UC values?
Panelists will take your questions and address inquiries related to how we best serve UC and community health needs and protect the interests of patients.
The University of California is a public university system and receives public funds ($9 billion in 2020-2021) from California’s state budget to conduct its mission. UC Health is the fourth largest health system in California, and it plays a central role in training medical students and caring for Californians.
