About the Program
Insights into the health care needs of undocumented patients can help the state prepare for the expansion of Medi-Cal to all low-income Californians. PPIC researcher Shalini Mustala will present a new report on the health of undocumented patients and the services they tend to use; report lead author Paulette Cha will moderate a panel discussion about the series of Medi-Cal expansions and other safety net investments that benefit undocumented residents.
This research and event are supported with funding from the California Community Foundation.
