Medical Debt Crisis: Impact on Native & Indigenous Families

February 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

According to data from Johns Hopkins, Native and Indigenous communities were disproportionately impacted by the pandemic due to underfunded and under-resourced health systems, limited access to health services, poor infrastructure, and underlying health disparities that place them at higher risk.

This webinar will look at medical debt in Native and Indigenous communities, the social and political influences causing an increased risk of medical debt, and what groups on the ground are doing to address this issue.

Participants will be encouraged to share their experiences in healthcare advocacy, data trends they have seen in medical debt in their states, and best practices and policy ideas for addressing medical debt in Native and Indigenous communities.

This webinar is FREE and will be made available for access following the live broadcast.
