We have worked with many public organizations to develop partnerships benefiting our client partners and the community particularly in Santa Clara County. For Kaiser Permanente, we worked diligently to support their Thrive brand through collaborative, unique partnerships that have withstood the test of time and are shared as best practices with other services areas, organizations and built upon by other community partners.
In 2007, we worked with employees and physicians to develop a creative child friendly program at eight community events throughout Santa Clara County. The Teddy Bear Clinic (TBC) followed the traditional model of a clinical visit including reception, visit with a clinician and non-clinical volunteers greeting families and children with handwashing activities. The visiting child received a teddy bear upon their visit and the clinician gave the bear a wellness check.
We also worked to bring not one but two Farmer’s Market to the KP San Jose medical campus providing employees, physicians and the community a much needed resource for healthy eating alternatives through a partnership with the Pacific Coast Farmer’s Market Association.
In 2005, we developed a partnership with the San Jose Children’s Discovery Museum promoting healthy lifestyle choices through play. The public relations team worked in partnership with museum staff to create the “Kick Start Eat Smart Healthy Lifestyle Initiative” in order to modify existing exhibits and add new programming encouraging health eating and physical activity.
