Health Happenings eNewsletter

After many Kansans started asking us for progress reports about the Foundation's work, we launched Health Happenings to convey that information. Every month, our electronic newsletter, Health Happenings, features a story about a focus area, grant, partnership or program involving the Foundation. You can review past issues of the newsletter below:
