Envista’s latest Cares Challenge aims to improve community health

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – Helping build healthy communities is the goal of this month’s EnvistaCares Challenge partner.

Grace Greene with Envista and Megan Skaggs, CEO of HealthAccess, visited Eye on NE Kansas to learn more about their work. Health Access works to improve access to health care, promote health equity, and coordinate volunteer efforts on behalf of the Shawnee County medical community. The Collaboratives ultimately provide low-income and uninsured people with help paying for prescriptions and help getting primary care and specialty care.

The EnvistaCares Challenge matches up to $2,500 in donations to Health Access during the month of November. Donation can be made online at www.envistacares.com. Envista will also support Health Access with a media package worth over $12,000 that promotes the group through billboards, email, social media and radio.

“This opportunity gives us much-needed support to continue to coordinate specialist physician referrals and process prescription payments for our patients,” Skaggs said. “The donation matching will have such an impact on our 1,550 patients currently enrolled in HealthAccess.”
