On December 12, HOAC will sponsor a training for legislative staff on health in all policies, including how to perform a health impact analysis on bills that may not seem to be related to health. This training is made possible by a grant from The California Endowment, and is cosponsored by Human Impact Partners and Assemblymember Richard Pan, MD. You can view the invitation here.
HOAC's Fall SemiAnnual Membership Meeting will be held on October 23 in Sacramento, and will be followed by a two-day CME program entitled "Public Health as Public Safety." This program will be worth a total of 10.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits(tm). To register, visit our cosponsor's website at http://www.cdph.ca.gov/programs/CCLHO/Pages/default.aspx.
The California state legislative session is over for the year. The governor had until October 13 to sign or veto bills sent to his desk. You can find the final status of bills of interest to the health officers here.
