2015 Legislative Preview and Public Health Equity Discussions
Monday, January 12th
The morning agenda will include a forecast from policy makers including the Honorable Adrienne Jones, Speaker Pro Temp, Maryland House of Delegates, and the Honorable Richard Madaleno, Vice-Chair, Senate Budget and Taxation Committee.
NEW this year, we will devote the afternoon to a specific policy focus that affects all communities in Maryland: public health equity. Speakers will frame the issues of health challenges and disparities that have not been addressed through health care reform, and identify priorities for nonprofit advocates from the environmental field, health field, workforce development, housing and other fields that all intersect with what makes Marylanders healthy or sick.
