From walking trails, to food pantries to training first responders, the Blue & You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas touches the lives of all Arkansans. The Foundation recently awarded a total of $2,674,119 in grants to 35 health improvement programs in Arkansas.
“Our grants this year went to programs across the state that address such issues as nutrition and exercise, dental and mental health, and medical professional education,” said Patrick O’Sullivan, executive director of the Blue & You Foundation.
Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield established the Blue & You Foundation in 2001 as a charitable foundation to promote better health in Arkansas. The Blue & You Foundation awards grants annually to non-profit or governmental organizations and programs that positively affect the health of Arkansans. In its 13 years of operation, the Blue & You Foundation has awarded nearly $22 million to 584 health improvement programs in Arkansas.
