Health Equity and Social Determinants of Health: New Resources for Providers
Health inequities persist even among those who get their health care coverage through work, according to this recent study. To help close these gaps in care, we are expanding our efforts to address health equity and social determinants of health. We have a new webpage dedicated to improving access to care for all our members.
The page has information about health equity: what it is, how we’re helping address it and what you can do to help.
One example of our efforts with Healthy Kids, Healthy Families®
Healthy Kids, Healthy Families (HKHF) is a grant program designed to improve the health and wellness of children and families across Oklahoma. Each year, the Healthy Kids, Healthy Families initiative provides grants organizations that offer sustainable, measurable programs to reach children and their families through nutrition education, physical activity, disease prevention and management or fostering safe environments.
