Access Health CT, the state’s health care exchange, unveiled a community wellness mural at Optimus Health Care in Bridgeport on Saturday. The dedication was part of a community celebration that included face painting and information about enrolling in health care through Access Health CT.
Optimus is one of 300 assister organizations in the state that residents can go to for information about the exchange.
“Healthcare Reform isn’t just about getting people insurance for unexpected medical emergencies, it’s also about providing access to the preventative care and wellness programs that will help people become and stay healthier,” explained Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman, in a news release from the event. “This mural is a creative way for us to express that commitment to building healthier communities.”
The mural was created by Rafael Cornier, Jr., a Connecticut-based artist.
Access Health CT has organized free enrollment fairs throughout the region to provide information about health reform. To find an enrollment fair or an enrollment center near you, visit learn.accesshealthct.com/enrollment-centers.
