For almost 50 years now, Family Health Care has been following a mission of service to others. Through this mission and with the collaboration of other FQHCs we hope to remove the barriers to health care while also removing each of the health disparities in the community. I am proud to recognize two new Mission Heroes within our organization. Mission Heroes are team members who have demonstrated outstanding motivation, drive, and dedication in helping Family Health Care meet its mission.
Kyle has been with Family Health Care for just over a year now and is part of our Outreach and Enrollment team. Her primary focus is on the Grant community but she also plays are large role in the outreach efforts for others in the state who share a similar role. Recently, Kyle was named as a Looper All Star, by the newsletter In the Loop – a joint project of National Health Law Program and Community Catalyst. Looper All Stars are Enrollment Specialists who go above and beyond the call of duty during the open enrollment period for the new health insurance law. These specialists help community members navigate the Health Insurance Marketplace, answer questions regarding insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, Healthy Michigan, and provide access to other community resources. Julie Tatko from the Michigan Primary Care Association (MPCA) nominated Kyle for the Looper All Star award.
