On Saturday, Jan. 16, 2016, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu will host a Citywide Day of Enrollment for uninsured residents to “shop” around for the best healthcare plan to meet their needs. The City of New Orleans government and its partners will heavily promote this day and direct residents to convenient registration sites (such as health clinics, restaurants and firehouses) around the city. The Mayor has accepted the White House’s Healthy Communities Challenge as part of a national effort to actively engage the uninsured and promote enrollment. New Orleans is competing alongside 19 other cities to enroll the most people before January 31. The city that signs up the most people will receive a visit from President Obama.

The Mayor’s Office and New Orleans Health Department are currently seeking 40 volunteers to assist with the Citywide Day of Enrollment Jan, 16. Roles/responsibilities include managing a site and supporting the sign up process (with a brief training beforehand).

Please complete this form if you/and or your volunteer base want more information about this opportunity.
