Working together to build a healthier community for all of us.

Kaiser Permanente believes when we collaborate and support each other, our work improves the quality of health and life in our communities.

We are dedicated to total health of body, mind, and spirit, and we pursue efforts that broaden access to the highest quality care for people when they need it. We believe all of us deserve to live healthy lives in our homes, our workplaces, and our neighborhoods. That’s why, for more than 65 years, we have worked to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve.

We accomplish this work in countless ways, from funding knowledge and resource sharing programs that address health disparities to providing assistance with health care costs to people in need. Our commitment is exhibited in the many ways we reach out and work with others to build a healthy future for all.

Kaiser Permanente Educational Theatre 30th Anniversary Video

In March 2016, Kaiser Permanente Southern California Educational Theatre (ET) celebrated 30 years of serving our communities through performance-based programs that inspire children, teens, and adults to make informed health decisions. A part of Kaiser Permanente’s Community Benefit, ET offers five unique programs that address the upstream determinants of health. They rely on community health needs assessments and collaboration with health educators, community advisory committees and Kaiser Permanente physicians to inform program development. The video above provides an overview of the program’s 30 year history and current offerings.

Theatre is a powerful medium and studies show that people relate emotionally to characters played by actors better than they relate to words on a page. Educational Theatre uses the imagination, interaction and immediacy of theatre to empower and inspire audiences through stories and modeling of positive behavior.

Since 1986, ET has reached over 6.7 million people with over 25,000 performances and workshops.
