Pledge to outreach with your students about affordable health care, and your efforts might earn your campus recognition from the White House. The White House has announced the Healthy Campus Challenge to help reach uninsured college students during the Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment Period (November 1, 2016 – January 31, 2017).
Colleges that complete all Healthy Campus Challenge outreach actions will receive a Healthy Campus certificate signed by the president and a chance to be recognized during Healthy Campus Day at the White House. Throughout the Open Enrollment period, the White House will highlight the work of participating colleges, especially community colleges.
Whether or not your CCC participates in the Healthy Campus Challenge, you can still help young adults learn about their options and enroll in health care coverage:
The purpose of the Veterans Summit is to ensure information and effective practices can be shared between faculty, administrators, and staff who work with student veterans on CCC, CSU, and UC campuses. The Summit provides an opportunity to learn from those who have significant experience serving student veterans, the chance to make important contacts, and an opportunity to share and showcase effective practices.
This year, the Summit is launching four concurrent tracks: Leading Effective Programs, Technical Training and Assistance, Serving Students with Disabilities, and Health and Wellness. Visit the session proposal link below to view sample track session topics.
Funded by CalMHSA, this program offers cost-free technical assistance to increase local adoption and promotion of existing and customized EMM tools and resources to the CCC campuses.
