$3.6 Million Disbursed to King County Organizations

HealthierHere recently disbursed $3.6 million to over 50 local Medicaid provider organizations for their participation in 2018 partner engagement and planning activities. Working closely with a broad spectrum of organizations from all sectors is part of what makes this work so unique, and – we anticipate – so impactful.

New “Public Charge” Rule Threatens the Well-being of King County Residents

HealthierHere urges community leaders, businesses and individuals to voice opposition

HealthierHere, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving health and health equity in King County, and its 26-member multi-sector Governing Board join with advocates, individuals and families across the state to condemn the proposed “Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds” rule proposed by the Department of Homeland Security on September 22, 2018.

If finalized, this new rule would have a significant and detrimental effect on the health and safety of our communities. People who have legally immigrated to the United States, their families and their U.S. born children will be forced to give up the basic assistance for which they are lawfully eligible – such as healthcare, food, and housing – or risk being separated from each other.

Centering Community Voice

Where do community members and community-based groups fit into HealthierHere’s work and vision? Marya Gingrey, HealthierHere’s Director of Equity and Community Engagement, recently had the pleasure of joining our local Somali Health Board’s Quarterly Meeting to discuss this topic. Watch the video to learn more.

Opportunity for Family Physicians

HealthierHere is proud to serve as King County’s Accountable Community of Health, and we encourage providers and organizations from all sectors and specialties to engage with our work to improve health in our community. The Washington Academy of Family Physicians (WAFP) Foundation recently announced a new opportunity for family physicians wanting to participate in this important work.
