Event Date
Add to Calendar 2016-12-13 00:00:00 2016-12-13 00:00:00 The Role of Mental Health in the HBCU Community 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. Potential themes include mental impacts of social justice on mental health, healthy living and access, and gender specific health concerns. The summit will include a topical discussion, strategy session and available resources (either on campus or within the community) for combating outlined issues. Summit details are listed below.
