Free Heart Health Month Programs at Blue Door Neighborhood CenterSM

Posted January 8, 2021

Encourage your patients to check out the free Heart Health Month events at our Blue Door Neighborhood Center (BDNCSM). Since all programming is currently virtual due to COVID-19, all your patients can take advantage of these activities no matter where they live.

This February, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) members and non-members alike may ask a health care professional questions about heart disease, high blood pressure, cholesterol or any other heart-related question during our Ask a Doc sessions. And, maybe you have patients who would benefit from a live cooking demonstration of heart-healthy recipes.

These are just two of the programs that will be offered at BDNC on multiple dates and times during Heart Health Month. Encourage your patients to check the calendars at BDNC at Morgan Park, BDNC at Pullman and BDNC at South Lawndale for details and to register. They can also visit the BDNC Facebook page  for other events and happenings at all three BDNCs.

Supporting our members on their health education journeys and increasing access to health care where our members live, work and play is an ongoing priority at BCBSIL. We are also committed to strengthening the health of communities across the state. BDNC gives BCBSIL the opportunity to partner with you, the provider community, to truly make a difference in the lives of residents in our communities.

Once we open our doors to in-person guests, please encourage your patients to stop by in person. If you or your patients have questions, send an email to the BDNC or call 773-253-0900.
