Local nonprofits, government, business organizations and Humana have built a strong foundation to help improve the health of San Antonio 20 percent by 2020 and beyond.
We partnered with Papa Inc. to connect college students, known as Papa Pals, to seniors who were at risk for loneliness to provide companionship, assistance with house chores, technology lessons, and other senior services.

Sharing our learnings: The Bold Goal is aspirational, but it’s deeply accountable because we’re measuring our progress. We’re using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tool called Healthy Days, asking Humana Medicare Advantage members how many mentally and physically Unhealthy Days they’ve had in the last month.
