What They’re Watching: Aracely Navarro, The Children’s Partnership

Aracely Navarro is the Policy and Government Relations Manager at the Children’s Partnership. She joins us in this edition of What They’re Watching to discuss quality access to healthcare for children.

“We’re really thinking about coverage as a first step, but also utilization, access to quality, and actually having access. So, what does that look like? Can you be innovative in how you get your care? So, we’re looking at teledentistry, telehealth for mental health and behavioral health, and really meeting kids where they are.

So, we’re looking at the WIC program, to think about not only the coverage piece, not through Medi-Cal, but thinking of other state programs that we could try to intersect some of the same populations in getting them to get covered and access.”
