Testimonials from across the state: “How is Apple Health for Kids vital to you, your kids, or your community?”

“I work at WIC in Whatcom County; almost all the kids we see have Apple Health. We help parents keep up to date with getting well-child checks, immunizations and dental care for the kids. Parents and kids need access to medical and dental care to address issues before they become problems. Healthy kids become healthy adults, and that makes a healthy community.”
