In 2020 the dual challenges of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the social justice unrest in the U.S. reinforced our focus on health equity and committed to our core purpose: To do everything in our power to stand with our members in sickness and in health.
Although access to medical care is an important piece of the puzzle, we know it’s not the only factor that determines someone’s health. Overall, a community’s health outcomes are molded by other dynamics as well, including:
- Nutrition (healthy food and exercise)
- Education and jobs
- Mental health
- Safe environment
