Medicaid Expansion and Access to Healthcare: Learning From Louisiana
Tuesday December 13, 2016
2:30 pm – 4 pm EST / 11:30 am – 1 pm PST
In March of this year, 2016 Health Summit: Creating an Agenda for a Healthy Louisiana was convened. As promised during the summit, the hosts gathered input on topics deemed important for continued discussion. This Web Forum will cover the Summit findings and explore these pertinent issues more deeply, and specifically will cover the topics of Medicaid expansion and access to health care in Louisiana—discussing the progress, changes, successes, and challenges.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in partnership with the Public Health Foundation (PHF), invites distance learning professionals who are responsible for developing online training products to apply to participate in the CDC E-Learning Institute (ELI) Fellowship. Apply today!
The CDC E-Learning Institute (ELI) Fellowship application period will be open from October 3 –.
The ELI Fellowship empowers education and training professionals from state and local health departments and public health organizations with the knowledge, skills, tools, and resources to create quality e-learning products. As part of the fellowship program, participants will create an online training product, receive mentoring support from CDC and outside e-learning experts, collaborate with peers, and take part in online learning opportunities. Participants will also travel to the CDC offices in Atlanta, GA to attend an in-person orientation and a final showcase event where they will present their e-learning products and receive constructive feedback from their mentors and peers.
