Video: Inspiring the Next Generation of Health Care Leaders

Doctors and nurses who work for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois recently welcomed Walter Payton College Preparatory High School students to the company's Chicago headquarters as part of its Blue Health Care Scholars program.

The event — organized by BCBSIL’s Institute for Physician Diversity — exposed students to various health care career paths and taught them lifesaving skills such as CPR.

“We want to do what we can to help inspire young people and share our journeys with them so that they can see themselves going into those professions in the future,” says BCBSIL Vice President and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Derek Robinson.
