All Connecticut Children Grow Up Healthy.

Why Is This Important?

Children with affordable, accessible health care services have the initial steps towards having a positive relationship with doctors and the role health care plays in their lives. Actively utilizing health care also helps parents and youth to develop a health lifestyle that reduce the chances of developing a chronic disease like obesity or asthma, lowers engaging in behaviors that result in ER visits and improves pregnancy outcomes, all of which have the potential for long-term health, financial, and personal costs. For future mothers, having proper health education and nutrition provides future children the opportunity to be born health and with positive outcomes of their own. Additionally, access to proper health care and having medical professionals such as doctors as regular mentors opens a door for conversation about behavior/emotional/psychological health assistance.
