Blue Door Neighborhood CenterSM Celebrates Physical Opening of Locations

Posted July 28, 2021

Our Blue Door Neighborhood Center (BDNCSM) locations in Chicago’s Morgan Park, Pullman and South Lawndale communities, are just one way we can partner with you to help make a difference in the lives of residents in our communities. All programming – in person and virtual – at BDNC locations is free and open to BCBSIL members and non-members.

Now that our BDNC locations are open to the public again, invite your patients to the events below and to view the calendars at BDNC at Morgan Park, BDNC at Pullman and BDNC at South Lawndale for details on all our programs, events and classes, and to register. Some popular classes include:

  • Bingo
  • Zumba®
  • Yoga
  • Low-impact fitness for older adults

Just for the fun of it, invite your patients to the family-centered block party at the BDNC in Morgan Park on Saturday, Aug. 21, 2021, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This outdoor event will feature:

  • Live DJ
  • Food and treats
  • School supplies (first come, first served while supplies last)
  • South Shore Drill Team and 40+ Double Dutch teams
  • Low-impact fitness demos and activities for the entire family
  • Community resource fair focusing on primary care
  • City of Chicago resources
  • Educational resources focused on mental health and financial literacy

In August, we’re also planning an Ask a Lactation Consultant event in partnership with the March of Dimes during the first week in August to coordinate with World Breastfeeding Week, and events to highlight National Immunization Awareness Month.

The BDNC locations also offer health education and connections to social support services.

These are just a few of the programs we’ll offer at our BDNC sites on multiple dates and times in August. Encourage your patients to visit the BDNC Facebook page for other events and happenings at all three locations. If you or your patients have questions, email the BDNC or call 773-253-0900.
