White House Champions of Change | Affordable Care Act Event, March, 2016.  

Chintana and the EI's Media Team met with the Honorable Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to the President.  Also met with Denis McDonough White House Chief of Staff.   This event was to honor and gave recognition to several outstanding Champions of Change recipients and to showcase success of Obama Affordable Care Act.  

As of March 2016, more than 20 Million new US taxpayers "including those with pre-existing conditions", are now covered by a healthcare plan of their choice and one they can actually afford.  For many, this is the first healthcare plan they have ever been covered under.  There is much to be said about (dignity and security).  

Empower Imagination salutes Valerie Jarrett and the Obama Administration for their great effort.
