Partnered Member Events
MHS Healthy Celebration events focus on getting members in need of service to the doctor’s office to receive their needed preventive care. MHS partners with a PMP office to schedule a specific day and time (four-hour minimum) for MHS members in need of service on the panel to visit the office and receive specialty visits and screenings for:
- Children’s health: EPSDT/well-child (lead screen age appropriate)
- Women’s health: Mammography & Chlamydia
Before and after the visit, the family can enjoy games, prizes and refreshments. Before they leave the doctor’s office, each household receives a goody bag full of MHS informational materials, giveaways and a healthy snack.
An MHS Baby Shower is a two – three hour event hosted at a provider office or local community center that can be tailored to the specific needs of a provider. The goal of the event is to educate members on the importance of prenatal and postpartum care as well as immunizations for their baby. The event consists of food, drinks, games, prizes, health education and safety tips.
We provide an educational overview of MHS programs including OB and Behavioral Health Case Management and also partner with various community organizations to talk about services that relate specifically to pregnant women and new moms. During the event, we give away baby health and safety kits as game prizes, and every member that attends gets a gift bag that includes various goodies and a pack of diapers.
Member Advisory Council
The Member Advisory Council (MAC) is a forum for soliciting member feedback regarding programs and materials designed for our membership. The feedback obtained helps MHS enhance its relationship and communication among MHS, its members and community partners.
MHS Adopt-a-School Program
The Adopt-A-School program allows MHS and schools to collaborate on initiatives and programs to educate students and their families on the importance of healthy living. Programming is interactive and emphasizes the importance of exercise, healthy eating, bullying prevention, school nurse support, and access to care.
