Murals To Highlight Health And Wellness

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) – Connecticut’s health insurance marketplace is unveiling the first of three community murals it has commissioned to highlight health and wellness.

Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman is scheduled to be on hand for a community festival on Saturday at the Stetson Branch Library in New Haven, where the mural is located. Representatives from the marketplace, known as Access Health CT, will be available with information about the program. Open enrollment began on Oct. 1.

Other murals were also commissioned in Bridgeport and Hartford.

Also Saturday, Access Health CT is launching a Hispanic supermarket tour.

Representatives will appear at the C-Town Supermarket in East Hartford. Hispanics are considered to be among the state’s most uninsured residents.

Access Health CT will also be at festivals and farmer’s markets in Stratford, Meriden and Torrington.
