Public Policy

All NEPO member organizations are encouraged to participate in the Public Policy Committee. The purpose of the Public Policy Committee is to:

  • Identify issues of concern and those areas where additional education is needed. [For example, how to have a voice in local community and Sacramento.]
  • Establish guidelines for the identification of issues.
  • Provide written policy briefs on issues from the unique perspective of ethnic physicians.
  • Act as a resource to policy makers and opinions on issues such as health disparities, access to care, diversity in the health workforce, and cultural competency.
  • Collaborate with community based organizations and others on issues of mutual concern
