Join us at our Inspiring Healthy Communities Summit on February 27, 2019
All faiths are invited to join this important discussion on the impact faith leaders and organizations have on empowering healthy lifestyles and communities. Faith leaders are uniquely positioned to discuss the idea of a unified body and spirit as they promote healthy lifestyles within their congregations and communities.

Part of the day's conversation will focus on the Medicare program and how recent changes to Medicare Part D in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 could jeopardize coverage for vulnerable beneficiaries. These recent changes would weaken protection for the six protected classes, destabilize Medicare Part D's successful structure and inhibit future access for many beneficiaries who rely on it for affordable treatment.
The Administration has proposed a new plan with some proposals that could address these affordability issues. Join us to learn about these Medicare Part D changes and how they may impact the people in your life.

Looking forward to seeing you!

About Us * The Delaware Ecumenical Council on Children and Families is a faith-based health advocacy, education, and services organization. * We engage, support and assist congregations, groups, and individuals of the faith communities in meaningful programs to improve the health, safety, and wellness of Delaware children, elderly and families. * The organization pursues this mission through community education and leadership development; program services to individuals, families, and communities; and community organization. These activities are intended to reduce the incidence and the impact of dysfunction, disease, and disability as they affect children, elderly and families. BACKGROUND The Council began in 1988 as the Delaware Ecumenical Council on Maternal and Infant Health, the locus and catalyst for Delaware's participation in the Southern Regional Project on Infant Mortality. The Delaware Council was the first such organization in the region. Since then, the Council has provided quality training to religious leaders and their congregations on health-related issues from infant mortality prevention to genetics counseling. Beyond training, the Council has linked congregations with health and human services organizations throughout Delaware for collaborative programs which provide effective and efficient preventive, early intervention and therapeutic approaches to family, elderly and children's health.
