Health Insurance Enrollment for Tennessee's Children Webinar 
Thursday, November 30, 11 am-12 pm CDT 
TJC's Kinika Young and Chris Coleman will review the different ways that children get health insurance in Tennessee, the exact pathways to enroll in each program, and the available resources to help enroll them. We will also discuss Tennessee's population of uninsured children and ways we can work to insure every eligible child in our state.

Please email Anna Walton at with any questions that you have so we can make the presentation as helpful as possible.

We have applied for CLE and CEU credit. We will let all registrants know if the credits have been approved ahead of time, and you can email after completion of the webinar to ask for your CE credit.

You can register here and mark you are attending on Facebook.

Our work is made possible by the David & Lucile Packard Foundation Insuring America’s Children Reaching the Finish Line Project grant that allows us to build a children-specific advocacy branch. Through this grant we have brought on attorney Kinika Young, a former partner at Bass Berry & Sims. We are thrilled and thankful for this opportunity to focus more time and resources on changing the lives of children in Tennessee for the better.
