Kimmy commented on Something Curious in the Healthy Lives Line

Yes, awesome to hear from a local meetup! We're currently working on piloting our idea in the east bay. Would love your thoughts!

We also developed 2 MVPs to assess and monitor basic needs for health (e.g., adequate work, sufficient financial resources, stable housing, food security, transportation access, safe neighborhoods, and social support.). Would love feedback on the tools!

1) The Health Roots Screening Tool is intended to aid health systems in identifying people who may be facing circumstances that could prevent optimal health care:

2) The Health Roots Survey is attended for more routine measurement and monitoring of basic needs that will help health care and social service systems address the social and economic roots of population health:

Kimmy commented on PROMOTE COMMUNITY BASED SCHOOL FEEDING PROGRAM

Thanks for posting! It would be great if health plans and providers could financially support school based programming as a method of preventative care. Would love to hear your feedback on our idea!
