The UCLA/ Johnson & Johnson Health Care Institute (HCI) is now offering a Train-the-Trainer Executive session for agencies wishing to bring this life changing program to their families. As most of you know, HCI is a comprehensive approach to health empowerment for your parents, children and staff. Since 2001, HCI has been assisting Head Start agencies to take better care of the health care needs of their children and has trained nearly 43,000 families to have the knowledge, confidence and resources to care for common childhood ailments at home.
Through the work of the Health Care Institute, we have seen a significant decrease in school days and work days missed, 29% and 42% respectively. We have also seen a significant decrease in doctor/clinic and ER visits. After families were trained, there was a 42% decrease in doctor/clinic visits and a 58% decrease in ER visits.
Join Professors Ariella Herman, Yvonne Randle and Ronnie Goodstein in St. Louis, Missouri in 2012. For more information on the Executive Train-the-Trainer Session, please contact:
