Healthcare costs are spiraling out of control and lifestyle behaviors coupled with socioeconomic challenges as well as prevalent health disparities within our communities are the primary cause. 75% of our over $3 Trillion dollar national healthcare expenditures are directly related to chronic diseases that are largely preventable. Specific to the mission, BCW provides wellness solutions for at-risk individuals and communities by developing and implementing programs and community-wide initiatives that address the social and behavioral determinants of poor health outcomes with a focus on lifestyle and behavior, food access and education, and environmental contributors.
