The Henderson State University Foundation has received a $5,000 grant from the Blue & You Foundation to help improve the health of faculty, staff and students by providing health screenings and educational events on campus.
The Blue & You Foundation recently awarded more than $2.3 million in grants to 40 health improvement programs in Arkansas.
“Our grants this year went to programs across the state that address such issues as nutrition and exercise, food insecurity, emergency medical services and medical professional education,” said Patrick O’Sullivan, executive director of the Blue & You Foundation.
Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield established the foundation in 2001 as a charitable organization to promote better health in Arkansas. More than $30 million has been awarded in the past 16 years.
