From the Cameroon American Council.

Hello African Faith, Community and Cultural Leaders in NJ/NY,

Kindly join us in Newark and New York for a Roundtable on President Obama's Healthcare Reform for the African Immigrant as it relates to HIV/HEP B. and other diseases in our community.

 This is a chance to meet with the Obama Administration face to face to discuss the health disparities within our communities, especially as we prepare for September as African Immigrant Heritage Month.

If your organization would like to be a co-host or co-sponsor, kindly let me know. To read more about the impact of our work?

Pefok is one of many faith and community leaders that the federal Department of Health and Human Services is targeting through a partnership with the Cameroon American Council. Sylvie Bello, a Cameroonian immigrant who heads up the council, approached the HHS Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services about a year ago. 

First program of its kind
In the past, CMS has worked with the Urban League, the NAACP and other African American groups to get eligible people signed up for public health insurance programs. But this is the first time it is reaching out to immigrants, said Melissa Herd, who does much of the training for CMS.
The goal of the partnership is to arm community leaders with accurate information about Medicare, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program “that they can take back to the communities they serve,” Herd said.
