Health Care For All would like to extend an invitation to our Fall Session of The Health Justice Academy: Building Health Care Power in Our Communities.
The Health Justice Academy is a free training curriculum composed of four weekly virtual modules that aims at providing tools to navigate the Massachusetts health care system and to advocate for health care rights and health equity in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath. These training sessions will be implemented via Zoom and are geared towards advocates, health care and social service providers, community leaders, and community members who would like to have a better understanding of how to advance health justice and protect access to coverage and care for Massachusetts residents.

For any interested participants that speak languages other than English, you can become a trained language liaison (stipend available). This role will consist of additional training to become a health care advocate in your given language so that any lessons and resources developed as a part of the Health Justice Academy can be communicated in the linguistically and culturally appropriate way.
