HCAOA Executive Director, Vicki Hoak, said "We hope our members will send out a communication to their frontline staff members to urge them to sit in on the town hall. This is where many of their questions will be answered." There will be no advanced registration required to participate and the town hall is free.
This national town hall will be broadcast in partnership with blackdoctor.org through its Facebook Live and Youtube streaming services. Typically the town halls conducted by BCAC and blackdoctor.org reach audiences of approximately 300,000.
