Advocacy Events & Webinars

Each year, the Georgia Legislature meets for forty days. And each year, the Georgia Legislature considers issues that impact health care consumers all across Georgia. Georgians for a Healthy Future monitors what’s happening at the Capitol and identifies opportunities for individual advocates and consumers — as well as our community partner organizations — to participate in the process. You can either participate in one of our organized advocacy days or you can contact us if you need help figuring out how to engage with your state legislators.

Join us for a legislative preview & federal update webinar

It is a time of uncertainty for health care. Congressional leaders have already begun the process to repeal the Affordable Care Act, landmark legislation that established a framework for coverage that has resulted in the lowest uninsured rate ever recorded, rights and protections for health care consumers, and provisions to advance health equity. With the 2017 Georgia legislative session underway, state leaders have acknowledged that something must be done about Georgia’s high number of uninsured, the state’s struggling rural health care system, and the impending funding cuts to hospitals. With so much uncertainty and change, it may be hard to keep track of what’s going on in health policy.

Join us for a webinar to learn about and discuss expected and proposed changes at the both the state and national levels. We will provide you with the most recent information about “repeal & replace” efforts and #ProtectOurCare advocacy, and how that will impact Georgia. We will also preview health care in Georgia’s 2017 state legislative session and tell you how you can get involved in the health care issues that you care about through advocacy and public engagement. Join us for a look ahead at health care policy in 2017. Register here to join us!
