Capitol Hill Briefing Series on Women’s Health Policy
Kaiser Family Foundation Capitol Hill Briefing Series on Women’s Health Policy
Women’s health needs and economic circumstances make health coverage and access to care important throughout their lives. They are disproportionately affected by changes in policies that impact both the private and public sectors. To provide policymakers with up-to-date information and allow for an interchange of ideas with experts in the field, the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, in partnership with Women’s Policy, Inc., sponsors this Capitol Hill briefing series on women’s health policy.
Each briefing in the series focuses on different aspects of Women’s Health Policy. Topics include:
- Women, Work, and Family Health: A Balancing Act
