Rep. Barbara Lee spoke at UC Berkeley’s “Fighting for Health Equity in 2017 and Beyond” on the Affordable Care Act, health care inequities, and the GOP’s health care bill.
Congresswoman Lee served as chair of the Congressional Black Caucus during the drafting of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and worked to ensure strong provisions that expand health care access, address health disparities and create incentives for people to live healthy lives. As a psychiatric social worker, Congresswoman Lee is dedicated to ensuring everyone has access to affordable and high-quality healthcare, especially the most vulnerable.
This event was sponsored by Berkeley Center for Social Medicine, UC Berkeley School of Public Health, School of Social Welfare, and Samuel Merrit University.
