Simplicity Wins Again
Young & Healthy was created with a very simple and uncomplicated concept: Neighbors helping Neighbors. While health care reform is complicated and confusing, simple kindness never is. Zachary squints at the back of his classroom and his teacher notices. The teacher, in turn, sends him to the school nurse who does a vision screening. The nurse knows the family well, and realizing they cannot afford an eye exam, she calls Young & Healthy. Easy next steps—a volunteer optometrist diagnoses the problem and writes a prescription for glasses. Zachary and his family come to Young & Healthy where he picks out new glasses and yet another volunteer makes the glasses for him. Just neighbors helping neighbors—simple as that.
