BJC Community Health
For us, good health is an important part of a vibrant community. But good health means so much more than just seeing a doctor for a yearly checkup. When we prioritize health every day, not just when you’re sick, we all get stronger together. It's why we support you—at every stage of life—with classes, events, exercise, advocacy and outreach, and financial programs which help us all make healthcare a central part of our lives.
