Eastern Kentucky residents were participants in a yearlong program that highlighted benefits of increased access to health care. Workshops promoted preventive care and chronic disease self-management.

The workshops were run by specially trained community health workers who advocated for member access to medical, social and environmental services.

Data showed a 10% drop in emergency room visits and a 23% decline in hospital admissions. Participants were also offered services that included health literacy, food and utility assistance and gas cards.

Direct education and support from health care providers and removing barriers to transportation allows for quality care and better condition management.
