Medicare Advantage - Register Today: Continuing to Explore the Intersection of Race and Disability

Register today for the Exploring the Intersection of Race and Disability forum hosted for providers on September 21, 2022. We believe that continuing the discussion we started at our June 2022 event to deepen the conversation about the disability experience for people of color is critically important.

Register today: Exploring the intersection of race and disability

Healthy Blue is committed to making healthcare simpler and reducing health disparities. Open discussion about the disability experience for people of color and reducing implicit bias for those in healthcare is critical to improving the health and well-being of the communities in which we live and serve — all Americans.

Join us in talking about racism and its impact on health

At Healthy Blue, we are committed to addressing racism in our society through open discussions about trauma, injustice, and inequality. These conversations are critical to improving the wellbeing of all Americans and the communities in which we live and serve.
