“I firmly believe that if you can find a way to teach people how to be healthy and active when they’re young, you can help prevent a whole host of other health problems later on,” said Pam Kehaly, President, Anthem West Region and Specialty Business.  “Healthcorps model of young mentors engaging directly with high school students does just that by actively teaching them to eat right and to get physically and mentally fit.  I’m proud to serve on Healthcorps Board and to be part of their work to help teens get and stay healthy.”

Ms. Kehaly brings an abundance of resources and experience to the board that will help continue to grow HealthCorps mission. Among her many accomplishments is her major role in developing Vivity, an innovative program that partners an insurance company with hospitals to help manage illnesses and achieve measurable results in wellness. Anthem Blue Cross Western aims to provide people with the financial security needed to tackle healthcare and her personal mission is to help individuals enjoy better lives.

“Pam Kehaly, through her work with Anthem, shares the same mission as Healthcorps and its partners: elimination of chromic disease through a prevention based lifestyle., says Dr. Mehmet Oz. As her company managed millions of lives, Healthcorps hopes to provide the adults Anthem will manage in the future with the tools of proper nutrition, exercise and mental resilience. Her perspective will be invaluable to HC carrying out its mission.”
