Speak Up For Those Most in Need

A webinar on leveraging Medicaid

Vulnerable children and families are often most in need of advocacy. We can’t speak up on their behalf unless we understand what resources can support them. Join NICHQ for a webinar where you’ll learn how Medicaid—which covers nearly half of all children under five—can be used to improve early childhood health and address disparities. This webinar will include a focus on helping families and community advocates understand and leverage Medicaid.

Demystify Your Message

Let’s face it, children’s health issues can get complicated quickly. Spreading your message means making sure consumers, community members, the media and elected officials understand what you’re saying and why they should care. Here are five ways to un-complicate your message: 

  • Circulate clear fact sheets to target communities
  • Organize informational, public meetings at community gathering sites
  • Write to those your issue will most impact and share how they can help 
  • Submit editorial pieces to your local newspaper to raise awareness
  • Create an online community where you can answer questions and share information
