Hello Health Care Advocates,
The Utah legislating season is underway, and we are headed into the second week of this unusual session. Check out our bill tracker on our website here, and keep watching for updates and calls to action as things get moving!
You can also see the notes from our first Health Care Round Table of the session linked here, and you can plan to join us on Thursdays at 1:00 for policy discussions, strategy brainstorming, and updates from advocates and elected officials.
Finally, check out this story on the concerning plan to merge the Department of Health and the Department of Human Services. Governor Cox has set up a series of meetings this week to hear input on the plan from stakeholders. If you did not receive the invitation and would like to attend, let us know and we can pass along the info. Stay tuned for more ways to get involved in asking the state to slow down and study the idea before rushing forward in the midst of a public health crisis.
