ACAP Fact Sheet Highlights Plan Efforts to Address Underlying Social Factors Which Affect Health.

A new ACAP fact sheet looks at innovative ways that Safety Net Health Plans are working to positively influence the life circumstances of their members that fall outside the traditional purview of the health care system: family support systems, housing, nutrition, income, education, and other dynamics. These factors are frequently referred to as “social determinants of health.” The paper profiles more than a dozen initiatives undertaken across the country, including a look at Passport’s unique Passport Teens program.

The paper in full is available here: http://ow.ly/yo9mx

Larry, Sandra, and Ryan from Passport, in partnership with the American Heart Association, attended a “Have Faith in Heart” event at St. Rita Catholic Church on Sunday March 9th.

“Have Faith in Heart” takes place in a faith-based setting and is intended to positively influence behavior change. Church leaders identify a Sunday when they can “Go Red.” Members are encouraged to wear red to recognize that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of men and women. Health screenings and educational activities will be coordinated before and/or after the worship service. Have Faith in Heart has the potential to reach thousands of people in the community and many of them will have several risk factors for cardiovascular diseases and stroke.  #ChoosePassport #heart #cardiovascular   #stroke

For nearly 17 years, UofL Physicians has been Passport’s majority sponsor. From the beginning, the Department of Pediatrics led efforts to guide and shape Passport. 

The last 10 minutes of this speech by Department Chairman Dr. Gerard Rabalais trace the roots of Passport’s focus on its mission first, and why this really matters. Our mission, vision, and values all reflect the University’s physicians’ dedication to and passion for improving health in Kentucky, and we are grateful for their ongoing support, guidance, and involvement.

Denim Day at Passport Health Plan. Associates wore denim in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month.

What is Denim Day?
For the past 15 years, Peace Over Violence has run the Denim Day in L.A. and USA campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month. In Kentucky, Denim Day is a local awareness project led by the Center for Women & Families. Wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. This year’s Denim Day focuses on educating the community at large on the legal definition of consent.   #ChoosePassport   #denimday2014
