In The Community

"Recent demographic statistics indicate that the face of America is continuing to change rapidly. One out of every three Americans is a member of a minority group. At the WellPoint Foundation our goal is to ensure that we are helping organizations that not only seek to improve health outcomes but also reflect the diverse nature of the communities in which we do business."
