Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama is proud to announce the launch of Chews Wisely Alabama®, a statewide initiative designed to help our members and Alabamians lead a healthier lifestyle by making smart choices that celebrate our state’s thriving food culture.
“Our company is consistently looking for opportunities to help Alabamians lead the healthiest lives possible,” said Dr. Mike Catenacci, Senior Medical Director of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama. “Chews Wisely Alabama is a new and dynamic wellness initiative that can help us eat healthier without feeling like we are sacrificing quality and flavor.”
Alabama has a well-earned reputation for delicious and traditional southern dishes. Chews Wisely Alabama aims to help people across the state make better choices without giving up the foods we love or traditions we grew up with.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, healthy eating:
- Prevents chronic health conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers
- Keeps skin, teeth, and eyes healthy
- Supports muscles and the digestive system
- Boosts immunity
- Strengthens bones
- Helps achieve and maintain a healthy weight
