Healthy Kids, Healthy Futures Review
Posted on October 12, 2018

The Healthy Kids, Healthy Futures campaign ran from July 1st through August 31st. The purpose of the campaign was to help keep children healthy by promoting well child visits. A well child visit is instrumental in the early detection of problems that could impact a child’s future.

After reviewing the focus population lists for UPHG and UPHP separately, populations were divided into two categories: Family Practice and Pediatrics (only). The winners are as follows:

  • UPHG BCBSM Family Practice Winner: Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC)
  • UPHG BCBSM Pediatrics (only) Winner: Upper Great Lakes (UGL) Hancock Pediatrics
  • UPHP Medicaid Family Practice Winner: Helen Newberry Joy (HNJ) Gibson Family Health Center
  • UPHP Medicaid Pediatrics (only) Winner: Mackinac Straits Health System (MSHS) Pediatrics

Winning practices received their gifts last week. The gifts are meant to be utilized as a way to celebrate staff and provider efforts in promoting and rendering well child check-ups to the children in the U.P!

Pictured below is one of the Healthy Kids, Healthy Futures raffle winners, Brady. He is 11 years old and was very excited about his winnings from the Healthy Kids, Healthy Futures participant raffle. He was entered into the raffle by completing his annual well child visit. Congrats, Brady!
