Following on the heels of Georgia, Alabama just passed the nation’s most restrictive reproductive healthcare...

Voices for Healthy Kids School Wellness
Within Kansas City, MO, a baby born in one neighborhood had a life expectancy 15 years shorter than a child born just a few miles away. Communities Creating Opportunity (CCO),a driving force for social justice and health in Kansas City and a Voices for Healthy Kids grantee, responded to the challenge in many ways. That comprehensive approach to improving health, particularly in neighborhoods that historically have lacked access to financial investment and opportunities, helped Kansas City win a 2015 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize.

But together, with the help of the U.S. Congress, we can put an end to that! ***SIGN our letter to your members of Congress and tell them to strengthen Summer Nutrition Programs and other child nutrition programs!

Blood Sugar Readings
6 months ago, if you’d asked me whether I’d be purchasing my 8 year-old daughter an iPhone and an Apple Watch, I would have given you the stink eye. Now she has both, as well as an insulin pump and a continuous glucose monitor (CGM). Why? Because she was diagnosed last fall with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D).
