HEALTHCARE

Supporting access to quality healthcare and initiatives that enhance the wellbeing of citizens

Health and Healthcare remain vital issues for traditionally underserved communities.  Issues of interest vary from understanding and acting on social determinants of health, to issues impacting the affordability of healthcare and insurance accessibility, as well as mental health and primary care services in urban communities.  We advocate for change in policy at the state level through active involvement with partners like the Children’s Defense Fund-Texas and the Center for Public Policy Priorities.  In addition to supporting various policy efforts that positively impact access to healthcare, insurance and mental health supports during the 86th Texas Legislative Session, CCPPI cosponsored the Children’s Health Coverage Coalition (CHCC) legislative briefing and “signed on” to the CHCC legislative priorities.

Building on momentum gained during the 86th Texas Legislative Session, CCPPI signed on as an endorsing member of the statewide #SickOfItTX grassroots campaign which is focused on expansion of heatlh care coverage in Texas during the 2021 Legislative Session.  Texas currently has the worst  uninsured rate in the country as highlighted by The Texas Tribune (2019) and it is beyond time to demand action from legislators.  Unfortunately children and mothers continue to be unfavorably impacted, not to mention the negative impacts for rural, impoverished and other historically neglected communities.  We are encourage more grassroots leaders to get involved in the campaign by clicking the following links to either join or receive newsletter updates!

Additionally, we strive to support the deployment of the Riverside Hospital plan as a follow up to early involvement of our founder's work with city and county officials to craft a rejuvenated opportunity to provide integrated primary care and other healthcare services through this promising model.  Involvement at the county level continues through communications and planning interactions with Harris County Precinct One Commissioner Rodney Ellis staff members.
