2018 Lawfully Residing Immigrant & Healthcare Access Training

APS Medicaid and New Mexico Center on Law & Poverty present the 2018 Lawfully Residing Immigrant & Healthcare Access Training.



APS Medicaid Enrollment Office, along with New Mexico Center on Law & Poverty, are hosting the 2018 "Lawfully Residing Immigrant & Healthcare Access Training" on Wednesday, October 31, 2018 from 1-4 pm at APS City Center. With such ambiguity and messaging in regards to immigrant families and healthcare coverage and support, we feel this training is vital for anyone who works with these populations or in the healthcare industry, providing services. 

At this highly important training, Sovereign Hager (legal director and public benefits attorney with NMCLP) will be discussing access to public benefits and healthcare for immigrant families, VISA types, and other supports for families such as TANF, LIHEAP and SNAP, and how to access those for your clients or families. Please note: The final hour of the training (3-4 pm) will be a Q&A period. Snacks & refreshments will be provided, but feel free to bring your lunch with you.

There's more about the amazing work Sovereign has done here:

The training will take place at APS City Center (Alice & Bruce King Educational Complex) in the Rio Grande Conference Room on the first floor. APS City Center is located at 6400 Uptown Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87110. This event is meant for APS providers, counselors, Medicaid or healthcare workers, and anyone else who could benefit. Everyone is welcome!
