Former Foster Youth Campaign
Date: April 25, 2018
Time: 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM (ET)
Who should attend: Advocates, providers, administrators, policymakers, and foster youth and alumni.
Are you interested in improving your state’s implementation of the provision to cover former foster youth to the age of 26? This webinar marks the launch of the Health Care for Former Foster Youth campaign, a collaborative campaign designed to assist states in effective implementation of health care for older foster youth. We’ll discuss six challenge areas the Campaign will focus on, including the youth application process, eligibility issues, data tracking, and youth outreach.
Join a select group of child welfare and Medicaid stakeholders, advocates, policymakers, and young leaders as we establish a peer learning community to help ensure all former foster youth have health care coverage to age 26.
