Health and Awareness Summit for HBCU Students!

Each year the White House Initiative on HBCUs has the opportunity to support the Affordable Care Act with outreach to our HBCUs. As the last enrollment period during President Obama’s final term, we are excited to establish innovative programming in partnership with our HBCUs. Open Enrollment for the Affordable Care Act occurs November 1st, 2016 – January 2017. Traditionally, the White House Initiative for HBCUs and other federal agencies have host phone-a-thons on campus to reach their local communities and encourage enrollment.

This year, we would like to extend our outreach to engage current HBCU students around relevant health concerns that impact their lives. Each summit will be an intimate conversation surrounding a pre-selected theme. We have been collaborating with select HBCU Student Activities offices to curate a one day summit that fits the needs and demographics of the student body. On January 11, 2017 we will conduct a summit at Virginia Union University. Additional information is listed below.
