Topic: Access to Health Care for Asian Americans and Minorities
Join us as Walter Tsou, M.D., M.P.H discusses opportunities to obtain health care for Asian Americans and other minorities. Special emphasis will be for those uninsured, undocumented, and qualifying for Medicaid. He will also explore the potential benefits and problems with the Affordable Care Act (Obama health plan).
