Los expertos viajan por todo el Commonwealth para ayudar a informar a los profesionales de la comunidad a comprender mejor y defender políticas que ayuden a los habitantes de Kentucky que necesitan asistencia con atención médica, vivienda, alimentación, transporte, cuidado infantil, prevención del suicidio y otros recursos. Los talleres de Thrive Roadshow, la gira Thrive, son gratuitos y están disponibles para el público. Emily Beauregard de Kentucky Voices for Health dice que los asistentes recibirán actualizaciones sobre cambios de políticas y financiamiento para programas que impactan a las personas en sus comunidades.

"Nuestro enfoque con la gira es asegurarnos de que los profesionales de la comunidad que interactúan con la gente a diario realmente tengan los recursos y las habilidades que necesitan para defender las políticas y programas adecuados para sus comunidades," explicó Beauregard.

Tiffany Taul-Scruggs de Mount Sterling Healthcare dice que su equipo de trabajadores de salud comunitarios confió en el programa Thrive para comprender mejor el proceso de renovación de Medicaid, de modo que pudieran mejorar la atención a su población de pacientes.

"Una de las cosas que realmente encontré útil es que son un grupo en el que puedo confiar, o si necesito llamarlos para hablar sobre cosas, realmente hacen mucho trabajo de preparación detrás de escena," dijo Taul-Scruggs.

Según el grupo de defensa de la atención médica K-F-F, más de uno coma seis millones de personas en Kentucky están cubiertas por Medicaid. Más de la mitad del gasto de Medicaid del Commonwealth se destina a personas mayores y personas con discapacidades.
