On March 9, 2013 Amerigroup Houston/Jefferson SDA plan in partnership with the East Texas Health Access Network (ETHAN) and other local organizations sponsored a Medical Camp in Kirbyville, TX. The purpose of the camp was to promote health and wellness among the under-insured and uninsured residents of a tri-county area. Preventive screenings and counseling were provided by local and regional healthcare providers and volunteers. Amerigroup staff provided health education materials and Medicaid program information to adults.
Amerigroup’s bounce house made its debut to promote physical activity among the children and was a huge success (even enticing a couple of Amerigroup’s staff members to take an exercise break). There was a scavenger hunt, lots of food and door prizes making this a fun as well as informative day for the entire family.
