The Bronx Forum

at Hostos Community College

The Impact of Health Care Reform in the Bronx What it means for you and your organization DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN EARLY 2011 Savoy Building, Multi-Purpose Room, 120 East Walton Avenue, Bronx, NY 10451 The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is fast approaching as a timeline is being drawn and new laws are written each day. How will this all affect the Bronx? The health care field? Small business? Non-profit, community, and faith-based organizations? Individuals? At this conference, we will hear about changes straight from the source: the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the New York State Department of Health/Insurance Department. A respondent panel made up of Bronx community and organizational leaders representing a cross-section of sectors and vulnerable groups will raise issues, questions, concerns, and engage in a dialogue to help participants better understand the ACA impact on the Bronx. A follow-up series taking a closer look at the impact of health care on vulnerable community groups such as youth, elderly, immigrants, and disabled will take place over the course of the year.
