WLA Member Christiana Care Partners With Charter School To Improve Family’s Health

Christiana Care has partnered with charter school Las Americas ASPIRA Academy, the first dual-language charter school in Delaware. Christian donated $3,500 worth of headphones for students in need to assist with their expanding online studies. The hospital is also sending a health worker to support students and their families.

 

“We want the ASPIRA students to have the tools they need to learn and stay healthy, and we are looking forward to what we hope will be a lasting partnership,” said Bettina Tweardy Riveros, Esq., chief health equity officer and senior vice president Government Affairs and Community Engagement at Christiana Care. “Education is a social determinant of health, with levels of educational attainment directly linked to important health outcomes such as infant mortality and life expectancy. We believe that by addressing the health needs of these students and their families, they will be better prepared to learn, which will have a lasting, positive impact on their health.”
