Half an Hour of Health Care - The Healthy Opportunities Pilot Project

Half an Hour of Health Care – The Healthy Opportunities Pilot Project

by Clarissa Donnelly-DeRoven

As the Healthy Opportunities pilot takes off, how are organizations using the program to better serve their customers?

We discussed this topic with Sonya Jones, co-founder of Caja Solidaria. As of August 18, Caja Solidaria had 47 referrals for the HOP program. Jones believes the program will be good not only for his clients, but also for the health of the community.

Amy Upham also joined the conversation as executive director of Eleanor Health Foundation. The foundation connects people with substance use disorders and other mental illnesses to things like affordable medication, employment and more.

Our third panelist was Madlyn Morreale, an attorney at Legal Aid of North Carolina. Legal Aid NC helps North Carolina residents find resources for housing, healthcare, and more.

Clarissa Donnelly-DeRoven, Medicaid and rural health reporter for NC Health News, moderated the panel.
