Making Medicaid and CHIP Part of a Safe and Healthy Summer Webinar

May 21, 2015
Educating families about how to stay safe and healthy all summer long–from safe play to healthy eating–offers opportunities to reach families with information about Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). This webinar features organizations that work with kids and families through safety education programming as well as summer food assistance programs. Speakers address how to make the connection to the important role health coverage plays in keeping kids safe and healthy, and opportunities to partner with these organizations to reach and enroll more eligible kids and parents in Medicaid and CHIP.
