You can still sign up to volunteer with DC Health Link, the District’s health insurance marketplace. This exciting partnership will train and support students in enrolling DC residents in a health plan during open enrollment this fall. Students can also earn 4 professional enhancement hours. During the training session on Friday October 16, 1:00-3:00pm, DC Health Link staff will review the goals, expectations, parameters, and volunteer assignment options, as well as background information concerning the Affordable Care Act and DC Health Link. Volunteers will also receive a long-sleeved T-shirt! If you are unable to make this date/time, please email Kishan Putta (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information on scheduling a separate training session.
Additionally, November 1st marks the first day of open enrollment, and DC Health Link will have a kickoff event at 2pm at MLK Library. This event will be open to all students, including those who cannot commit to volunteering with DC Health Link throughout open enrollment. We hope you will be able to attend!
