Driscoll Health Plan, in partnership with the County of Hidalgo and the County of Cameron, Texas, held two ribbon cutting ceremonies on September 16th and 17th, to announce the establishment of the Health Education and Literacy Program (HEAL)- Community Connection Center and the Cameron Community Connection Center.
Both Centers will offer health education at no cost to Cameron and Hidalgo County residents, including immediate supplies and monthly presentations to grow families’ awareness of health topics. We know that families with health education are more likely to be healthier and reduce high risk factors. There will be information on more than 23 health topics for families, expecting mothers and children. Families will also be able to connect with community resources. The goal of this program is to highlight the social determinants of health with awareness and encourage long-term healthier habits.
