UnitedHealthcare has donated $1 million to the Office for Community Child Health of the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in order to support care delivery functions.
The office will use the proceeds to create a Maintenance of Certification program to help train primary care pediatricians in managing diseases such as asthma and obesity, the company announced Tuesday.
Additionally, the OCCH will also establish the UnitedHealthcare Innovation Fund to help start new programs from design to implementation, evaluation and replication.
Nearly 600 trained doctors will deploy to 170 practices throughout Connecticut for children’s healthcare.
The OCCH has worked with 10 local, state and regional programs to improve living conditions of children.
