This group addresses access to care issues for Aurora’s children (and families, of course). Currently, they are focusing on transportation barriers to those with Medicaid coverage and expanding “medical homes.”

This group meets from 10:00 to 11:30 am on the first Tuesday of every-other-month, starting in February. Location varies from meeting to meeting. Sign up to receive notifications!
