On Nov. 30, 2022, the Kansas Health Institute (KHI) offered an education session to explore why health insurance coverage remains out of reach for many Kansans. After KHI provided an overview of health insurance coverage in Kansas, a panel of individuals who work as navigators shared stories describing the experiences of Kansans who are seeking health insurance and care.

Panelists include:

  • Kate Gramlich, Cover Kansas Project Specialist, Community Care Network of Kansas
  • Jennifer Wilson, Cover Kansas Virtual Navigator, Community Care Network of Kansas
  • Leah Gagnon, Director of Patient Engagement and Wesley House, Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas
  • LeAndra Hancock, Community Health Worker, Allen County, Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas
