In addition, the 100% Campaign is a collaborative effort of Children Now, the Children's Defense Fund and the Children's Partnership to ensure all California children obtain health-care coverage. More information is available at www.100percentcampaign.org or (510) 763-2444, ext. 122.
Teachers for Healthy Kids brings together health insurance plans and teachers who are dedicated to improving the health of students.
