What We Do

We’re tackling the leading causes of preventable disease—at the community level. 

It’s a grim reality. The diseases that kill more than 20,000 Minnesotans each year are largely preventable.

The Center for Prevention is collaborating with organizations statewide to address four key issues: healthy eating, physical activity, tobacco use and health equity. By addressing these leading root causes of preventable disease—and the unique barriers certain communities face—we can have a significant, collective impact. 

  • Making Healthy Choices Possible for All Minnesotans

    The Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota tackles the leading causes of preventable disease -- tobacco use, physical inactivity and unhealthy eating -- to increase health equity, transform communities and create a healthier state.
