Neighborhood Health Plan (NHP), in partnership with local Community Health Centers and radio stations, is launching a series of family-friendly health education events to raise awareness about staying healthy and managing chronic diseases. Over the next two months, NHP’s events will feature health screenings, activities for children and adults and free giveaways at malls across the state. 
 
Staff from local Community Health Centers will administer health screenings, and planned activities range from airbrush tattoos for kids, to trivia, and more. Participants will have an opportunity to win a variety of fun prizes. 
 
The health education events are a key part of NHP’s commitment to providing access to preventive care and reducing health disparities. For more than 25 years, employers, individuals and families across Massachusetts have turned to NHP for high-quality health care coverage that is affordable. With NHP, members get access to a large network of doctors and top hospitals and community health centers, effortless customer service and great wellness benefits — all at a price they can afford.
