will be the topic for our keynote speaker Linda Katz, Esq. at the 13th annual Children's Issues Forum, to be held this year on Wednesday, June 3 at the Village Inn in Narragansett from 8-10:30 a.m.
Katz, who co-founded and remains the Institute's Policy Director, is responsible for legislative and policy analysis and advocacy on a range of public benefits and programs, including: welfare, health care, child care, and employment
and training. Among many other activities, she is also chair of the statewide RI Works Advisory Committee, RIte Care Consumer Advisory Council, and one of nine public members of the state's Health Insurance Exchange. She is a member of the new Reinventing Medicaid Working Group, established by Governor Raimondo to improve the quality of health care for Rhode Island's vulnerable citizens and to reduce costs for taxpayers.  Before joining the Institute full-time in 2001, Katz worked for the RI Health Center Association, RI Disability Law Center, and RI Legal Services.
