About the Health Policy Summit
HCC Health Policy Summits bring together policy professionals and bleeding disorders community stakeholders to discuss state policy issues and trends that may impact the bleeding disorders community, reflect on current healthcare concerns, consider long term priorities, and develop strategies and action plans to ensure continued access to quality, patient-centered health care in California. HCC utilizes this wide network of stakeholders to craft a strategic approach that best represents bleeding disorder patients while advancing access to care, including those underserved.
In addition, this program serves as a critical source of policy and health access education for bleeding disorders community leaders and advocates. HCC will be supporting increased participation by patients and other community members as part of a campaign to build a statewide network of educated, active community advocates to both educate their communities on issues impacting health access and better report grassroots threats and barriers to increased quality of life for people with bleeding disorders.
Membership is not required to attend. Members receive one ticket per summit and regular updates on state policy that may impact the bleeding disorders community’s access to care or treatment. Individual event tickets are $1,500. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. The 2023 Health Policy Summits take place in person/virtual in Sacramento on February 2 and September 21.
