Centene Corporation strives to transform the health of the community, one person at a time. In doing this, Centene has built nationally recognized programs to support its members in taking control of their health, which in turn creates healthier individuals and vibrant communities.
The Centene Book Series grew out of an initial project that focused on the nearly 1 million children who are served by the company. Centene developed the original Children’s Book Series because there wasn’t good material available to teach kids about their diseases, and children need to be part of the solution in managing and preventing disease conditions. In collaboration with award-winning children’s author, Michelle Bain, over 40 books have been developed for children, teens and adults in both English and Spanish.
Through the series, Centene aims to improve the health of the populations it serves, improve the quality of care in specific clinical areas, and reduce the disparities in care for racial and ethnic populations.
