Davis said, "The Healthy Families Program and Medi-Cal for Children give the opportunity to enhance the lives of thousands of children throughout California. Through events like the Long Beach Children's Health Fair we will continue to reach California families to achieve our goal of ensuring that every eligible child in California receives the health care he or she needs and deserves."
