Orange County Grantmakers is thrilled to extend the invitation to their upcoming convening, “OC Healthcare Philanthropy in Action: Advancing Health Equity through System Transformation” on Thursday, September 21st!
This event aims to create a better understanding of the changing California safety net landscape, identify risks and opportunities related to state policies, local needs and existing initiatives, and the opportunity to discuss philanthropic actions to support known health disparities in Orange County. We encourage ALL members of OCG to attend. As we know, healthcare is no longer limited to the health sector only, but intersects with issues of housing, food, early childhood and more.
