Medicaid Expansion update at CORC Annual Meeting
The Annual Meeting of the Coalition of Religious Communities will take place on May 14, 2014, from 6-8 PM in the Dean's Hall at the Cathedral Church of St. Mark, located at 231 East 100 South in Salt Lake City. This year's summit will feature keynote speaker Nate Checketts, Health Reform Coordinator for Utah's Department of Health, talking about the topic, "Medicaid Expansion: Where are we now?" Mr. Checkett is part of the team working to gain approval of Governor Herbert's Medicaid Expansion plan and so this should be a very intersting presentation. Before the meeting begins you are invited to join us for a light dinner at 5:30 PM, also in the Dean's Hall. Please let us know if you are planning to come to this fun, free event by registering here. Get a flyer to help promote the annual meeting here.
