Thank you to those who joined the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network’s (ACS CAN) virtual event,
Medicaid and COVID-19 through the Health Equity Lens. A replay of the event is now available and can be accessed on the
Medicaid Covers Us website.
The event, part of the
Medicaid Covers US project, featured several nationally recognized experts who explored the role of Medicaid in addressing health and racial disparities that have been further exacerbated by Covid-19.
Dr. Jamila Michener, associate professor and Co-Director of the Cornell Center for Health Equity and Dr. Alpa Patel, senior vice president of population science for the American Cancer Society (ACS), shared some insightful research about the disparate impact of COVID-19 and cancer on different populations. Mike Perry, partner at PerryUndem, shared preliminary findings of new messaging research he conducted for ACS CAN exploring changing views on Medicaid and access to care as well as racial health disparities.
In addition to the event recording, you can view several short films and videos highlighting the impact of COVID-19 on communities and health care providers in
On Wednesday, November 18, the

Post-Election Analysis for Medicaid: Messaging, Policies and Action. This event is open to all ACS and ACS CAN staff and volunteers, as well as the public.
