Concerned about health coverage inequities among CSHCN in your state? The Catalyst Center has created Health Care Coverage and Financing for Children with Special Health Care Needs: A Tutorial to Address Inequities to help Maternal and Child Health (MCH) leaders, family leaders, and other stakeholders understand and address health care coverage inequities that exist among vulnerable subgroups of CSHCN.
On Monday, June 20, 2016 the Catalyst Center conducted an hour-long webinar to “get acquainted” with this new tutorial. MCH staff from Alaska and Michigan shared strategies they used to work towards health equity for CSHCN in their states.
MCH staff from the Alaska Title V Program discussed a partnership that improved health outcomes for children in tribal communities.
- Becky Morisse, Alaska CYSHCN Director
- Stephanie Wrightsman-Birch, MCH Director
MCH staff from the Michigan Title V Program discussed the implementation of Practices to Reduce Infant Mortality through Equity (PRIME) within the Michigan Children’s Special Health Care Services (CSHCS) Division.
- Brenda Jegede, Coordinator for PRIME
- Lonnie Barnett, Michigan CSHCS Division and Title V CYSHCN Director
The Catalyst Center is the national center for health insurance and financing for children and youth with special health care needs.
