ETP HISTORY

For more than 25 years, Kaiser Permanente has brought health education to our communities through the Educational Theatre Program (ETP). Through music, comedy, and drama, our live theatre programs and artist-in- residence programs are offered to schools and communities free of charge in each of Kaiser Permanente’s seven regions. In the Northwest, Kaiser Permanente has partnered with Oregon Children’s Theatre for the last ten years to bring this vital work to our community. Kaiser Permanente is proud to support initiatives like the Educational Theatre Program (ETP) that focus on community health and well-being. Themes of past plays include obesity and bullying, healthy eating, mental health, and peer pressure. Since 1986, Kaiser Permanente’s Educational Theatre Program has reached an estimated 15,206,780 million people.
