Photo 1

According to the last census bureau, 14% of Utahns are uninsured and in Utah County alone 12% of the residents are uninsured11.8% of families with children in Utah County are also in poverty.  Many, if not all of them according to the percentages above, are without health insurance. With the emerging changes in our health care system and the economic crisis it may be hard for these families to get adequate and affordable dental and medical care. Community Health Connect realizes this need in our community and is doing something about it. The non-profit organization has physicians, nurses and other skilled professionals who donate their services and time to help those in need of medical and dental services.
