Wellness Focus: Allergy Awareness

Did you know that one in five people in the U.S. suffer from allergies? Reactions can range from minor to severe, with the most dangerous being anaphylactic shock. Unmanaged, this condition can significantly affect you physically, emotionally, and financially.

If you or a loved one has allergies, you can turn to Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, our health insurance provider, for help. They have a new six-month program to help you learn more about allergies and how to manage them. You don't have to tackle allergies all at once, or all by yourself. Make small changes, a few at a time and you'll be surprised at what a difference it can make in your life.
