As the Healthy Opportunities pilot begins, how are organizations using the program to better serve their clients?
We discussed this topic with Sonia Jones, co-founder of Caja Solidaria. As of August 18, Caja Solidaria has 47 referrals for the HOP program. Jones believes the program will not only be good for her clients, but also for the health of the community.
Amy Upham also joined the conversation as executive director of the Eleanor Health Foundation. The foundation connects people with substance use disorder and other mental illnesses with things like affordable medication, jobs and more.
Our third panelist was Madeline Moreale, an attorney at Legal Aid of North Carolina. Legal Aid NC helps North Carolinians find housing, health care and more.
NC Health News Medicaid and rural health reporter, Clarissa Donnelly-DeRoven, moderated the panel.
