The current national conversation to reform the American health care system has potentially overlooked cost-effective alternatives and best practices found within the public, private and non-profit sectors.  Given the high number of uninsured Hispanics today, this briefing provides an opportunity to highlight the leadership and efforts being made to address the serious health disparities before a diverse audience of key decision makers in the U.S. Senate and House, administration officials, public policy advocates, as well as other Hispanic community leaders.

About CHLI:

The Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute (CHLI) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization, based in Washington, DC, that promotes the positive advancement of the diverse US Hispanic community in the public, private, and non-profit sectors, as well as in the international community.  For more information, please visit
