Kaiser Permanente Approves $22 Million in Community Benefit Grants in Second Quarter of 2008
Date:7/29/2008

ente is committed to supporting the Safety Net which serves California's uninsured and low-income populations who often live in underserved communities that are especially vulnerable to health disparities.

Community Health Initiative

As part of its commitment to fighting obesity, Kaiser Permanente has pledged $750,000 over two years toward a study by the Institute of Medicine titled, "Evidence Framework for Obesity Prevention: Integrating Action and Evidence." The study will establish appropriate scientific criteria for assessing the evidence-base for community- and policy-level obesity prevention efforts and develop practical recommendations to make evidence-informed decisions.

Other grants addressing obesity prevention in local communities include a $220,000 contribution to the California Medical Association Foundation for the "Physicians for Healthy Communities-Obesity Prevention Project" to develop a web-based registry which will connect physicians to local organizations engaged in obesity prevention activities. A $300,000 grant was also awarded to the California Task Force on Youth & Workplace Wellness to support programs such as the development of the "California Fit Business Award" recognizing workplace wellness programs; the "School Wellness Challenge" to assist schools in developing and implementing their school wellness policies, and legislative luncheons to educate state legislators and the public about various healthy eating, active living topics such as food stamps, menu labeling and access to water in schools.
