Lorina Marshall-Blake has been the president of the Independence Blue Cross Foundation since October 2011, which is when the foundation was first established.
Message From The President Independence Blue Cross Foundation:
Whether we are working with neighborhood organizations to support healthier communities, strengthening the delivery of health care, bolstering the health care workforce, or convening nationally respected thought leaders to share ideas and strategies, the success of the Independence Blue Cross Foundation rests on the strength of our partnerships. We are proud of the Foundation’s remarkable accomplishments, and most of all we take pride in the robust relationships we’ve built throughout our community based on trust, sharing knowledge, and a common mission.
We are Leading Solutions for a Healthier Community through our bold initiatives. Consider the Independence Blue Cross Foundation Supporting Treatment and Overdose Prevention (STOP) Initiative, a program that will address the opioid epidemic in communities through education, prevention, and treatment of opioid abuse disorder. Or learn about our research and investment in building health center capacity across the Blue Safety Net to safeguard access to primary and integrated care in underserved communities.
Since our launch in October 2011, we have had an incredibly productive and collaborative experience, and we have many to thank for our success: our colleagues, our grantees, and the leaders in health who have committed their knowledge and passion to improve the health and wellness of our neighborhoods and beyond. As we continue to lead, our positive impact in the community continues to grow. We are grateful to those who are a part of Independence Blue Cross Foundation’s partners with purpose.
Yours in good health,
