Humana has a Bold Goal – a population health strategy to improve the health of the communities we serve 20 percent by 2020 and beyond. Together, with physician practices and community partners, we are cocreating solutions at a local level. By addressing social determinants of health such as food insecurity, loneliness and social isolation, we are working to improve the health of those living with chronic conditions one person, and one community at a time.

Health is local, which is why we are working with community organizations and health care professionals to address social determinants of health such as food insecurity, loneliness and social isolation at a community level. We are tracking progress with the CDC tool, Healthy Days, and we publish our learnings each year in our Bold Goal Progress Report. Together, we can make health easier. Be a part of something BOLD.
