Communities in Focus Event: Communities with Disabilities

The Los Angeles County Health Agency – in collaboration with the City of Los Angeles Department on Disability Policy and Advocacy Forum Series – brought together residents, community organizations, and other stakeholders to recommend strategies to increase and improve access to—and the quality of—services within the LA County Health Agency.  The interactive forum provided input on the Center for Health Equity’s work over the next five years and identified ways we can work together to build health equity across the county for communities with disabilities. 

Event cosponsors include:  

    • City of Los Angeles Commission on Disability
    • City of Los Angeles Department on Disability
    • The Coelho Center for Disability Law, Policy and Innovation, Loyola Law School
    • LA County Commission on Disabilities
