On March 19, 2019, the Idaho Caregiver Alliance hosted our first legislative lunch at the Idaho State Capitol. The event was open to all caregivers, their loved ones, and our legislators. The lunch, sponsored by Blue Cross of Idaho and Molina Healthcare, was an opportunity to help connect caregivers with their legislators in a setting less intimidating.
During the planning process, it was suggested that we pick a type of lunch that would reflect family caregivers; we decided on a breaded bowl of soup.
The event was so successful that we’ve scheduled our second legislative lunch for 2020, stay tuned. Here is a video we put together from the photos collected during the event, click here.
