E.C.H.O. Workshop #6 - The Affordable Care Act in the Capital Region: How to Enroll

AAHI recently partnered with the African American Health Program and the Latino Health Initiative to host “The Affordable Care Act in the Capital Region – How to Enroll” workshop on Monday, November 18th. This was the sixth workshop in our Empowering Community Health Organizations (E.C.H.O.) Project, which provides practical and professional workshops designed to build the capacity and sustainability of community organizations.

The workshop was led by a panel of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) community partners, who presented an overview of their current tailored efforts to enroll the community in the Capital Region (Montgomery County and Prince George’s County). In addition to the panel, the Lead Navigator of Interfaith Works demonstrated how to enroll for health coverage on the Maryland Health Connection. Attendees learned what steps Capital Region residents can take to enroll under the ACA and what resources are available for community members who need assistance. There was a full house of over 125 attendees, representing about 62 organizations from the community. We want to thank our panelists, speaker, attendees, Health Promoters, Steering Committee, volunteers, and staff for making this a successful event!
