As millions of California children (of all ages) head back to school, there is an opportunity to inventory and purchase the supplies that kids will need to be successful in school in the next year. We’d like to join our colleagues at the 100% Campaign and the Young Invincibles to highlight the fact that healthy kids learn better!
According to the 100% Campaign, children showed a 63% improvement in paying attention and keeping up with school activities when they went from being uninsured to being covered under Healthy Families.
The 100% Campaign has developed a Back To School Checklist with a list of important “to-do”s for parents to ensure that children are ready for school.
The Young Invincibles has created a Back to School Toolkit to assist college students in getting covered as part of their back to school shopping!
Please pass these resources along to any who may need it!
