Connecting Kids Program Ends
The Connecting Kids to Healthcare Through Schools Program has been helping schools and school districts throughout California promote the enrollment of children and youth into healthcare plans since 2003. Sadly, the Connecting Kids Program came to an end on April 30, 2008. We would like to thank The David and Lucille Packard Foundation for their continued support and funding of the Connecting Kids Program for the past five years. We would also like to recognize Judith Torres, Education Coordinator for the Connecting Kids Program. Ms. Torres has been instrumental in working with school staff to promote healthcare education and support school-based outreach.
The Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board (MRMIB), through existing staff resources, will continue to support some of the school outreach tools that were previously available through Connecting Kids. These tools include the Request for Information (RFI) “Good News About Health Coverage” flyers, Parent Information Flyer, and collateral materials. For more information on continuing school outreach, please go to the MRMIB website. If you have questions on school outreach, please contact Mr. Brian O’Hara by e-mail at BO’Hara@mrmib.ca.gov or by phone at 1-916-322-8815.
Our appreciation goes out to schools, school districts, county offices of education, and community-based organizations who have taken an active role in promoting the State’s healthcare coverage programs to parents throughout California. We would like to send our sincere thanks for your continued support in helping children access healthcare information. You have helped us to achieve our common goal of providing healthcare coverage to uninsured children, which helps them grow into knowledgeable, competent, healthy adults able to reach their full potential. We believe that the Healthy Families, Medi-Cal for Families, and Healthy Kids Programs play important roles in achieving this goal. Once again, thank you for your efforts and continued support.
