The Health Care Authority (HCA) needs you! In preparation for the end of the public health emergency (PHE), we are looking for volunteers to share Apple Health (Medicaid) information with their community. Let’s help keep Washingtonians covered!
Many times, people from our community have difficulties accessing Apple Health programs and services due to language barriers, transportation, lack of engagement, etc. We are looking for volunteers from organizations such as schools, food banks, churches, and community advocates to get involved and become an Apple Health Ambassador.
HCA will continue to share updates as new information becomes available. Follow us on social media for updates on Apple Health. For more information about the Public Health Emergency visit hca.wa.gov/phe.
Family Voices is recruiting 8 diverse multilingual people to participate in the project advisory committee (PAC) for our new project to Promote Equitable Access to Language Services (PEALS) for families of CYSHCN. The PAC will lead the project by identifying community needs, and reviewing and testing materials to be sure that they work well for English Language Learners.
The PEALS project will improve the quality and use of language access services in the healthcare setting for families with limited English proficiency.
Eligible participants will be:
Diverse youth or family members of CYSHCN with limited English proficiency (LEP) who speak more than one language, (Chinese, Arabic, Spanish etc.) or
Allied health workers or health care providers who speak more than one language, (Chinese, Arabic, Spanish etc.) or
Community health workers who speak more than one language (Chinese, Arabic, Spanish etc.)
PAC members receive $300 for each meeting they participate in.
The goal of this project is to improve the quality and use of language access services in the health care setting for families with Limited English Proficiency. Family Voices and our partner at the American Academy of Pediatrics will work alongside families with lived experience to develop educational tools and strategies for families, community health workers, and health care providers to improve the way they use language access services.
If this project interests you, please complete the application below to be considered as a member of the Project Advisory Committee (PAC). This committee will help identify community needs and review and test materials to be sure that they work well for English Language Learners.
Family Voices is holding a focus group for the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). The group is for young adults, 18 to 26 years old, with a developmental disability. The purpose of the group is to learn:
· What you know about COVID shots · What else you want to learn · The best way for you to learn about the shots
We will be inviting young adults to participate. If you want to be considered for the group, fill out this survey. The group will meet by Zoom. If you are invited to the group and you join, we will give you $125 to thank you.
Family Voices will write a report for the AAP to share what you tell us. We will not use your name or any other information about you. No one will know the comments you made.
