Child Health Day, celebrated annually on the first Monday in October, is a vital reminder of the unique healthcare needs of children and the importance of ensuring that they grow up healthy, happy, and with the promise of a bright future.
Today, communities, healthcare professionals, and parents come together to emphasize the critical role of nutrition, immunization, and regular check-ups in maintaining children's health. It's also an opportunity to advocate for policies that promote access to quality healthcare, safe environments, and supportive educational opportunities for all children.
Child Health Day has extra significance to the team at Maximus, who bring a daily dedication to ensuring critical access to healthcare for millions of children across the U.S. through our work and philanthropy.
Through our work with the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) program, since its inception 26 years ago and up to the 15 states we support today, we have been helping bring healthcare, along with the financial security and peace of mind that comes with it, to children and their families across the country.
This dedication extends to the Maximus Foundation and our support of the many partners who share this commitment. On Child Health Day, we’re honored to highlight several Maximus Foundation grantee partners working to keep children healthy, growing, and thriving nationwide.
On Child Health Day, we proudly recognize the important work of these organizations that focus on children's long-term health and wellbeing. Learn more about the many Maximus Foundation grantee partners supporting local communities at https://maximus.com/grant-recipients.
