Texas State Rep. John Davis Honored as 'Champion for Children' by The AMERIGROUP Foundation

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The AMERIGROUP Foundation today announced that State Rep. John Davis of Houston has been honored with its "Champion for Children" award.

The award is part of the AMERIGROUP Foundation's national program recognizing outstanding public advocacy efforts by government and community leaders in improving the health and well-being of children nationwide.

"Our goal is to work together with local leaders and citizens for the benefit of healthier communities, and that starts with children," said Aileen McCormick, CEO of AMERIGROUP Community Care in Texas. "Rep. Davis and his efforts represent terrific examples of what we can all accomplish when we keep the end result in mind. Rep. Davis' commitment to improving the Texas Medicaid system to encourage efficiency and preventive care through Medicaid managed care programs is a great example of how Texas can meet the critical goals of controlling cost while also improving the health of our children through innovative programs. We're thrilled to recognize Rep. Davis for his work, and we're equally excited to witness achievements that will assist in making our kids and communities healthier."

To commemorate Rep. Davis' commitment to children and their families, a $2,500 Foundation contribution will be presented to the DePelchin Children's Center, which is the largest and most comprehensive provider of children's social and mental health services in the Houston area. Rep. Davis said he is honored by the award and appreciative of the Foundation's support in Houston.

"The AMERIGROUP Foundation's commitment and many contributions focused on encouraging healthy families and communities have been tremendous," Rep. Davis said. "I appreciate their support of great organizations like the DePelchin Children's Center that positively impacts so many lives in our community."

The AMERIGROUP Foundation is the philanthropic arm of AMERIGROUP Corporation, a multi-state managed healthcare company based in Virginia Beach, Va. The Foundation works to help create healthy communities by fostering access to healthcare, encouraging safe and healthy children and families, and promoting community improvement and healthy neighborhoods.
