Health Education Program Philosophy and Approach

Trusted is committed to providing quality health education programs and health promotion activities as a part of a continuum of member services.

Trusted Health Education Programs include the following components:

  • The importance and availability of testing for HIV/AIDS and the services available for its treatment.
  • The importance and availability of early intervention for infants, toddlers and school-age children, including children who either have been diagnosed as having, or who are suspected of having, a developmental disability or delay. Weight control and nutritional counseling.
  • Guidelines on nutrition for pregnant women and children, the importance of prenatal and post-partum care, and the how to obtain benefits from the WIC program.
  • Sexuality education for teenagers: prevention of pregnancy, protection from STDs, and issues of sexual orientation and gender identification.

These activities focus on wellness and begin during the enrollment and new Member orientation process. Health education programs share the dual goals of increasing Members' knowledge, while at the same time fostering their desire to attain and maintain healthy behaviors and skills that enhance their quality of life. Thrive firmly believes that promoting self-confidence in managing one's medical condition is crucial. Educating members how to do this is an adjunct to helping members be able to manage their health conditions. In addition to evaluating each class, the Health Education staff will be incorporating an evaluation of the member's ability to sustain the behaviors learned in the classes. Practitioners are encouraged to refer members to classes and to recommend various class topics they feel will be beneficial for their patients. The Health Education Coordinator will send a summary of your patient's participation activity and the goals accomplished at the end of the class.
