What do you want to know about health insurance rate increases? What is the Rate Detective? What is the Individual Rate Review Rule? Do you want to know how to find a rate increase on-line? For answers to these questions, attend the informational meetings held below! We want to show you the Rate Detective and inform you of our current Rate Review activities and plans ahead. During the 2011-2012 year ADOI has continued its efforts on a Grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to improve transparency of health insurance premiums for individuals and small employers. During the grant period ADOI has pursued the goals of transparency, technological efficiency, and working towards Effective Rate Review.

I am part of a non-profit organization on ASU campus called Camp Sparky, which works with children from Title 1 schools (where more than 50% of the kids qualify for free lunch) and encourages them to pursue their dreams and higher education.
On May 7th-May 9th we are having a Big Camp, in which we will be taking 4th/5th graders camping. The theme of this camp is The Odyssey, so counselors will be participating in activities that have to do with the Olympics, Greek Mythology and Theater, etc. This is free for all students that sign up and includes transportation to camp!
We desperately need more counselors, particularly male counselors (however we more than welcome female counselors!).
If you are interested in this wonderful opportunity, please contact me!
The City of Phoenix is one of the largest organizations in the valley. This means that we are able to host a wide variety of volunteer opportunities that not only allow ASU students to make a positive impact on the community, but to also gain valuable insight of the capacity and inner workings of local government.
You are invited to join the Campus Environment Teams from each of our four ASU campuses to recognize recipients of the ‘Excellence in Diversity’ awards. These awards are presented annually to campus (staff, students, administration, and faculty) as well as community members who have demonstrated continuous attributes in the following areas:
. Demonstrated and promoted a continuous commitment to cultural diversity (which is inclusive of gender, religion, sexual orientation, etc. );
. Sponsored and/or participated in programs/activities that have cultivated diversity and inclusivity; and
. Modeled respectful treatment of all persons in how s/he interacts/interfaces with others.
Along with recognizing our award recipients, Delia Saenz, Vice Provost of Undergraduate Education will present ASU’s Diversity Plan and talk about the value of the CET, and Mark Searle, Vice President for Academic Personnel will be the keynote speaker for the event.
I’m Robyn McKay, the founder of WISE at ASU-Polytechnic. Originally, the acronym WISE stood for for Women in Science & Engineering, but my team of student leaders and I have expanded the organization to include women who are pursuing careers in entrepreneurship and management as well as science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. My solution is about how I took something that I saw as an injustice when I was in graduate school (read: something that made me free really angry) and turned it into a cutting-edge leadership development program for young women pursing technical professions.
I decided to do Ignite because I think it’s important to give a voice to WISE, an organization that’s become so much bigger than just one person. WISE has gathered many advocates and leaders who are making a difference in the lives of young women. Not to mention the young women themselves. I wanted to put the spotlight on the extraordinary young women who are at the heart of the program. My solution is important to the world because young women are the next generation of global leaders. I believe we must do what it takes to give them the leadership skills, self-confidence, and persistence necessary to advance their ideas so that we can all benefit from their innovative products and services.
The Ignite experience was brilliant: from the audiences’ enthusiasm and learning from other speakers, to being part of a program that’s designed to inspire others – it was all so amazing. My favorite part was getting to hang out with Kayla Burkholder, the Vice-President of WISE; and my colleague, Assistant Dean of Students Mike Mader, who were also speakers.
Take 5 minutes and watch my Ignite video. Then ask yourself: What inspires me? What makes me so angry that I have to do something about it? And then go do it. Bring your own solution to the table. We need more solutions. We need your solution. Submit your solution at http://solutions.asu.edu
