Healthcare is significantly influenced by various social factors, as clearly outlined by the social determinants of health. One critical area we are actively working to enhance is health literacy—helping individuals comprehend essential health terminology. At the core of effective healthcare lies the ability to navigate the intricate healthcare system. 

Join us this Thursday, March 14th for Understanding Social Security Benefits: A Guide to SSI and SSDI Programs. In addition, later this month Accessia Health, in collaboration with Pharmaceutical Executive, will host a discussion on Healthcare Access Barriers: Industry Trends and the Patient Assistance Approach. Read more below and be sure to register to join in both conversations.

On March 1st, we celebrated the outstanding contributions of our team members on Employee Appreciation Day. Through peer-driven nominations, we identified several individuals who embody our Core Values, showcasing dedication and commitment to our mission.

A big congratulations to Amy Jackson, Eric Conners, and Kristin Shifflett for their exceptional service and unwavering adherence to our values. Your efforts make our organization stronger and more vibrant.

As we head into Spring, we thank you for your continued engagement and participation. Together, we continue to learn, grow, and support one another, making meaningful strides toward our shared mission of enhancing healthcare access and improving lives.
