With the third Health Insurance Marketplace enrollment period approaching this fall, Missouri Foundation for Health and its Cover Missouri Coalition are beginning a new push to educate those who remain uninsured. A total of 15 organizations were chosen to be outreach partners, with the program set to last six months, from September 1 through February 29, 2016.
In June partners of Missouri Foundation for Health's Infant Mortality Reduction Initiative gathered in Cape Girardeau for a joint convening, Better Together: Community Collaboration for Infant Vitality. The action-oriented event marked the first time that partners from both the St. Louis and Missouri Bootheel efforts came together to share lessons they have learned thus far, as well as plans for the future.
We're proud to introduce the four new members of our Community Advisory Council, Judy Baker, Joel Ferber, Sosunmolu Shoyinka and Kimberly Stemley. Each of these newcomers will offer their unique expertise and skillsets to this important group, ultimately giving the Foundation greater insight into the most pressing health issues facing Missouri.
