A big thank you to the National Arc’s HealthMeet Team and the Walmart Foundation!
Thank you to the National Arc’s HealthMeet Team and the Walmart Foundation:
The Health Care Advocacy Program would like to thank the HealthMeet team, which is part of the Arc of the United States, for inviting us to apply for a grant entitled “Fitness for All” offered by the Walmart Foundation. We were awarded a $15,000 sub-grant which funds health education classes for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). This money specifically goes to providing a program called HealthMatters that teaches people with I/DD simple ways they can better their food choices and eat healthy. We want to express our gratitude to the HealthMeet staff for believing in us and supporting us through this process! And thank you to the Walmart Foundation for giving to nonprofits in order to better the lives of others!
The Health Care Advocacy Program has recently started following Oral Health Colorado (OHCO) for updates on relevant legislation. Here are the results of the 2015 session:
This committee is working towards sharing success and struggles in providing wellness opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We meet every other month in the AdvocacyDenver office. Interested? Find out more and sign up HERE.
