National Health Observances and Campaigns

  • You+Blue

BlueCare Tennessee feels that your health care is important. We want you to know about events and information that can improve your health and well-being. Each month, we choose special health topics and highlight National Health Observances. We send health care messages and reminders aimed at your individual needs. The information is based on things like:

  • Your health
  • Your age
  • The ages and health of your children
  • Your gender
  • Where you live

We also want to make the information easy for you to find. That's why we have provided you with a monthly calendar, tools, and tips. Some months contain information that you can save or print. Enjoy and take action today!
