Serving those who serve South Carolina

Healthy Hour

Onsite health education

BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina offers onsite health education seminars using Doctors Care professionals. Presenters  include physicians, nurses, health educators and nutritionists. As an employer who participates in the State Health Plan, we encourage you to use your annual Employer Group Report to select topics that impact your members most.

 

These engaging presentations take 45 minutes and will end with 15 minutes of questions and answers. It’s recommended to have 25-35 participants per session. And, Doctors Care can accommodate multiple
sessions per day. For greatest impact and “teachable moments,” we recommend offering these sessions to participants immediately before or after their preventive screening.
