Feb. 05, 2019

Tulsa, Okla — Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma (BCBSOK) has awarded grants to 14 organizations from across the state, through the 2019 Healthy Kids, Healthy Families® (HKHF) initiative.

HKHF is part of an ongoing commitment to support in and partner with nonprofit organizations that offer sustainable, measurable programs to reach children and their families in four key areas: nutrition, physical activity, preventing and managing disease, and supporting safe environments.

“There are many organizations that are making positive changes in the health of Oklahomans. Our Healthy Kids, Healthy Families grant program allows us to support these successful efforts,” said Joseph Cunningham, M.D., president of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma. “Partnering with organizations from all over Oklahoma means a healthier future for the state.”
