Investing in the Community, Investing in Health

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) is committed to promoting better health across North Carolina

That's why we launched GO NC!, a partner program with the Nourishing North Carolina initiative that launched in the summer of 2011.

  • GO NC! is a four-year initiative to build healthy lifestyles by encouraging North Carolinians to get outside and get active through the advancement of North Carolina's greenway systems, increased access to public bicycles and the overall promotion of outdoor physical activity.
  • Nourishing North Carolina is a statewide community garden program producing local, healthy foods in each of our state's 100 counties. Learn more.

We hope you agree that both are a good investment in our communities.
