Community Diversity

Community Diversity

"Celebrating the rich diversity of individuals and businesses that we bring to the communities in which we live and work."

Serving a Diverse Population

We understand that each of our customers is unique. An extensive client base of individuals and families with different backgrounds and health concerns demands a variety of products and services. We offer a wide range of affordable products and services to meet their needs.

BlueCross also supports the unique needs of our customers through a number of statewide programs that encourage diversity of thought and experience.

Tennessee Health Foundation

The mission of our Tennessee Health Foundation is to enhance quality of life for Tennesseans through grants to improve public education, health and economic development by:

  • Supporting effective multicultural approaches for developing healthy lifestyles
  • Enhancing collaborative community partnerships for broader access to health resources
  • Exploring innovative solutions to break cycles of health neglect
  • Establishing healthy initiatives aimed at prevention, intervention and education
Shape the State Scholarships

The Shape the State scholarship program provides $10,000 worth of grants for up to 20 schools to improve their physical education programs.

Diversity Scholarships

The health care industry is changing. That change not only brings increased access to insurance for populations never covered before but also a greater need for a qualified, diverse workforce to deliver that care.

In 2012, we established a scholarship to address this need for more inclusion in the health care setting. The BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Community Trust, in collaboration with the Memphis chapter of the National Association of Health Services Executives, offers a $10,000 (awarded in two payments of $5,000 each over the course of two consecutive semesters) college scholarship to three Tennessee minority students who wish to pursue careers in the field of health care.

Applications for the 2015 scholarships are due April 01, 2015. Learn more about the scholarships.
