Join us as we combat the Trump Regime’s attack on health care and build the framework for universal health care for all Floridians within 2 years!

We’ll hear from some of the most highly respected minds in the health care policy area, as well as those in the activism arena, come together, formulate a game plan with measurable objectives, and hit the streets running. You’ll leave energized, organized, and with specific ways to impact your local community.
