As a remedy, they shared how the enhanced data liquidity will power the informed-decision making and information technology-enabled business that bring disruption to the marketplace.
Dr. Chris L. Hickey, Sr. Attends Datapalooza Conference in Washington D.C in an Effort to Simplify the Affordable Care Act Through Upcoming Community Awareness Dialogues
Los Angeles, CA – June, 2 2013 – This week Dr. Chris L. Hickey, Sr. attends Datapalooza Conference in Washington DC. During his stay, he has schedule several meetings with key individuals at the Department of Health and Human Services and will gain greater insight into the multiple benefits of the Affordable Care Act. This information and the connections will serve Dr. Hickey’s upcoming Community Awareness Dialogues and simplify the understanding of the Affordable Care Act for underserved communities.
In preparation for the implementation of the Affordable Care Act; Dr. Chris L. Hickey, Sr., Executive Director of Each One-Teach One: Alliance for Academic Access, Achievement and Success - an Educational and Community Awareness nonprofit – is gaining more insight into the multiple benefits of the Affordable Care Act, along with the importance of utilizing the collected health data.
“Clearly, this is an important and relevant issue for our community. We must understand the value and requirements to conduct our own research on our community. We cannot rely on research conducted in other communities to be relevant to our particulars, nor should we rely on others to conduct adequate and relevant research for us. I hope to learn how others are benefiting from the use of “local health data” and construct ways to implement the same in our communities,” said Dr. Hickey.
The Health Data Consortium (HDC), the group organizing Health Datapalooza IV, encourages the creation of a health data “ecosystem” that promotes and accelerates the innovative use of health data. The Consortium is a collaboration among government, non-profit, and private sector organizations working to foster the availability and use of health data to drive innovations that improve health and health care. The Consortium advocates data best practices and information sharing with data providers, and works with businesses, entrepreneurs, and academia to help them understand how to use data to develop new products, services, apps, and research insights.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law in March 2010 and was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court earlier this year. Among the most sweeping reforms to the healthcare system in U.S. history, the ACA will increase access to healthcare for as many as 30 million Americans and eliminate insurers’ ability to deny people coverage for pre-existing conditions.
Dr. Hickey is leading the charge in disseminating the Affordable Care Act through a series of upcoming Community Awareness Dialogues to be held throughout Southern California. These dialogues: Affordable Care Act: Its Implementation and Our Community, will include health experts and prominent community leaders and will cover key components, requirements, and opportunities, as well as provide attendees an opportunity to ask questions of the panel members. To stay informed on these upcoming dialogues, forward your email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

They cite pressing issues—jobs, housing, racial profiling—among African Americans
A panel of political, labor, educational and clergy leaders are demanding that elected officials establish and maintain a high level of accountability in providing services to and improving the standard of living in the African American community.
The Black Community, Clergy and Labor Alliance (BCCLA) convened a summit Monday morning at the African American Cultural Center in the Crenshaw District, specifying to liberal-democratic officeholders and candidates that the Black vote will no longer be automatic.
“We no longer can give our vote and not have accountability from our political leaders,” said the Rev. Eric Lee, president of the BCCLA. The group announced a Black Community Candidate Covenant to achieve policy and political goals that are mutually beneficial to the officeholder and their constituency. READ MORE
Wednesday night’s show on Hot Topics Talk Radio with host Toni Breedlove featuring special guest Dr. Chris L. Hickey Sr., Executive Director at Each One – Teach One Alliance for Academic Access, Achievement and Success in Inglewood, Ca. proved to be well worth the wait for those of us in the Eastern and Central Time Zones of the country. An eclectic mixture of simmering anger, resentment and hope all found their way into the conversation pot producing in some instances relief for those seeking a bowl of venting soup or a forum for those raising their hands with possible ingredients for remedy, but without a doubt a gumbo of genuine concern and compassion for those touched by this epidemic. Surprisingly and certainly cutting against the grain of resigned to notions which stereotype men as the problem in this crisis, Mona Lishey, one of the show’s co-host raised the specter that perhaps some responsibility for the absence of fathers be attributed also to women. A notion I might add, Dr. Hickey as well as other males present agreed with, albeit with nervous trepidation. READ MORE
