Arise’s Debbie Smith will be part of an advocacy training presented by Alabama Arise and Doctors for America on May 13. There are options to attend either virtually or in person in Birmingham. (Location information is coming soon.)
One in five Americans are covered by Medicaid. The Affordable Care Act expanded the Medicaid program to cover almost all adults with income levels up to 138% of the federal poverty level. But millions of Americans live in states that have not yet expanded Medicaid. As of April 2023, 40 states and the District of Columbia have adopted Medicaid expansion. Ten states have not expanded Medicaid, including Alabama.
Doctors for America believe physicians are the best advocates for putting patients over politics. With the right tools, physicians can be public health leaders in implementing change in their communities.
Join Doctors for America and Alabama Arise for an advocacy training in Birmingham on Saturday, May 13, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Please note this training is open to public health advocates in Alabama only. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. This event is free.
