Every Body Walk! Campaign
The California Endowment was established in 1996 as a result of Blue Cross of California’s creation of its for-profit subsidiary, WellPoint Health Networks. Since then, we’ve invested in health broadly, from strengthening the safety net for families struggling with poverty to diversifying the health care workforce.
The lessons learned from early investments were the genesis for Health Happens Here and the 10-year, $1 billion Building Healthy Communities plan, in which residents in 14 places are working to transform their neighborhoods.
