Comment by Bruce Broussard, President and CEO, Humana
“Humana has long believed that social determinants of health (SDOH), such as food insecurity, play an underemphasized role in health challenges,” said Bruce Broussard, President and CEO, Humana. “That’s why Humana in 2015 launched our Bold Goal: to improve the health of the communities we serve 20 percent by 2020, working with medical professionals and community organizations to alleviate SDOH issues for seniors and for commercial health insurance members. It’s also why we believe that a program that combines nutrition with physical fitness can go a long way toward helping people achieve their best health.”
