Encourage your patients to attend the free Mental Health Awareness and Women’s Health Month events at our Blue Door Neighborhood Center (BDNCSM). Since programming is virtual due to COVID-19, all your patients can take advantage of these activities no matter where they live.
In May, in addition to our popular yoga, Zumba and meditation classes, the BDNC will offer opportunities for women to learn best practices and tips to help stay healthy physically and mentally. Courses may include lessons on maintaining a healthy weight, getting and staying active, eating a heart-healthy diet, managing stress and sleep habits.
In addition, community members attending the Ask A Doctor events can virtually ask questions about mental/behavioral health and women’s health topics that are of concern to them.
These are just a few of the programs we’ll offer at BDNC on multiple dates and times during Mental Health Awareness and Women’s 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 locations.
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’re also committed to help strengthen the health of communities across the state. BDNC gives BCBSIL the opportunity to partner with you, the provider community, to help 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. If you or your patients have questions, email the BDNC or call 773-253-0900.
