The Affordable Care Act (ACA) provides a critical opportunity to improve the health of women via increased access to quality care and preventive services. This GIH audioconference provided a brief overview of the ACA as it relates to women's health. Presenters explored what was included in the law for women and what was left out. Participants learned what foundations can do and are doing at the local, state, and national level. Time was provided for questions and open discussion.
