About the Coalition
The National Coalition on Millennial Health (NCMH) serves as a central coordinating hub for strategies, resources, outreach campaigns, and partnership building around issues impacting Millennial health.
Improving Healthcare and Health Literacy
Millennial Health Outcomes
As Millennials remain among the most underserved and uninsured segments of the health care market, this Coalition seeks to identify ways to ensure more Millennials not only purchase health care coverage, but also learn how to use their insurance, and feel empowered to make their own health care decisions.
This situation is much worse for our most vulnerable populations. Millennials of color still remain uninsured at higher rates than their white counterparts. Even when young adults gain coverage, they lack the knowledge on how to use their insurance or the benefits of preventive and primary care.The coalition will engage leading national partners that have an interest in best practices for best practices in enrollment, and moving beyond enrollment to ensure real health access to Millennial consumers in their community.
A Collaborative Space for Millennial Health
Coalition meetings regularly feature updates from participants in the field and highlights from the latest research on Millennial health. The meetings also provide access to, and topics for, a monthly panel of young health consumers. Additionally, members frequently share new resources such as websites, toolkits, and mobile apps. Each of the coalition meetings will highlight 2-3 impactful examples of organizations engaging Millennials on their health.
