Health in California Under a Trump Presidency
California’s health landscape is always shifting due to budget fluctuations, market dynamics, and policy and demographic changes—and the pace of change is likely to accelerate following the November 2016 election. Change can lead to challenges and challenges often disproportionately impact low-income residents and vulnerable populations. How can we improve access to and quality of care in our state? How can we promote fundamental improvements in the health status of all Californians, particularly those most in need? This panel featured three prominent California health policy leaders dedicated to advancing meaningful, measurable improvements in the health of individuals and of our communities as they discussing how California can best move forward following the recent election and the challenges and opportunities present in our changing landscape. This event was part of the School of Public Health’s 2016-17 Dean’s Speaker Series and the 2016-17 Kaiser Permanente Lecture Series.
