2019 Welcome Reception

On the evening of September 12, our conference will officially get underway with a welcome and kick-off reception. This dinner is meant to honor and thank Florida's hardworking advocates. Representatives from our partner organizations will be on hand to share more about their issues and initiatives, including in the areas of oral health, mental health, education, and the environment.

Lastly, we will highlight Florida's campaign for Medicaid expansion by thanking the volunteers of the ballot initiative campaign and shedding light on where we go next.
