The event, hosted by La Fe Policy Research and Education Center and UTSA College of Public Policy, will convene grass-roots and national experts to address implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), policy needs and the 2013 Texas state legislative session (click here for more information on the ACA).

According to a press release: "Health care quality in Texas ranks 50th in the nation, and 60 percent of Hispanics lack health insurance. Failure to implement the Medicaid Expansion and Health Care Exchange will mean millions of uninsured Texans will continue to be at-risk for poor health and financial consequences."
