Quality care for children with special health care needs, child poverty, health care coverage, and adequate investment in public health services are among the issues California must address to create a comprehensive and well-coordinated health care system for children and families, according to a new report from the California Budget & Policy Center. Health policy experts from the Center, the UC Berkeley School of Public Health and the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health will discuss the report's findings in a June 2 webinar, and assess its policy recommendations for promoting a lifetime of well-being for children in California.
The report, funded by the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health, also includes an accompanying piece that provides a breakdown of major policy decisions over the last several years that have shaped today’s health system for children in California.
Expert speakers include:
- Edward L. Schor, MD, Senior Vice President, Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health
- Timothy T. Brown, Associate Adjunct Professor of Health Economics, University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health
- Kristin Schumacher, Policy Analyst, California Budget & Policy Center
