Thank you for attending the 22nd Annual ITUP Conference!
The 22nd Annual ITUP conference laid the groundwork for health reform in California for 2018, highlighting anticipated federal challenges as well as opportunities for the state to preserve and expand gains in coverage and health improvement. This signature state health policy conference brought together health care leaders across the state to consider the state of health reform in California and to share policy ideas, strategies and emerging best practices to advance health in California. No matter what challenges the state may face.
Thank you to all the attendees, speakers, sponsors, and funders who help make ITUP events a success. The 23rd Annual ITUP Conference will be held February 4-5, 2019 (note date change). Mark your calendars and save the date!
