Education and health are closely linked. The Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health knows that education, particularly schools, play a vital role in building a healthier Idaho.

A Better Way

Children spend significant time at school, making these institutions ideal partners in the Foundation’s efforts to create healthy communities across Idaho.

We are committed to working with schools and school districts to collaborate on ways to improve the health of our future leaders. We help remove barriers to education and address the root causes that impact health by collaborating with schools, communities and organizations.
