The Kansas House Health and Human Services committee is scheduled to receive testimony in support of House Bill 2064, which would expand Medicaid in our state. Sunflower Foundation issued this written testimony.
The Sunflower Foundation Board of Trustees has approved a statewide $120,000 pilot project focused on supporting community-based strategies to address food access needs in rural areas, such as strengthening local grocery stores.
The Sunflower Foundation is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals for Capacity Building. The submission deadline is Wednesday, February 15, 2017. Funding announcements are expected by Friday, April 28, 2017.
It is a pleasure to announce that Brandon Skidmore has joined Sunflower Foundation as Program Officer. Brandon has extensive experience in both health and public health systems, most recently serving as Director of the Bureau of Health Promotion at the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
"People are the basis for participatory democracy. But the ‘public’ has been missing from public policymaking on KanCare expansion. People matter, and their voices need to be heard. Sunflower Foundation is committed to helping the public shape our state policy to improve the health of Kansans."
