LanguageLine is thrilled to announce a special edition of our ongoing Webinar Series, "Navigating Changes: Section 1557 of the ACA."

This upcoming webinar, scheduled for Wednesday, May 29 at 2:00 PM ET, will be led by Mara Youdelman, a leading legal expert in language access and civil rights issues. Mara serves as the Managing Attorney at the National Health Law Program’s Washington D.C. office and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the discussion.

During the session, Mara will explore the recent updates made to Section 1557. These changes are designed to enhance civil rights protections, particularly for individuals with limited English proficiency and those who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing. The webinar will cover how these updated regulations affect healthcare providers and organizations, ensuring that all participants understand the implications for their practices and the steps necessary for compliance.

Essential Information

The importance of such updates cannot be overstated. They ensure that no individual is denied health services or receives poor quality care due to language barriers. This session is particularly crucial for administrators, healthcare providers, and compliance officers who need to navigate these changes effectively.

Attendees will also have the unique opportunity to engage directly with Mara during the Q&A session. This part of the webinar is invaluable as participants can raise specific questions or concerns about how the changes may impact their operations.
