Be in the Know about your Health

Programs focus on Chronic Kidney Disease and COPD

What does it mean to “Know Your Numbers?” When it comes to managing Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), knowing your health numbers, like your blood glucose, blood pressure, body mass index (BMI) and your waist circumference can help you keep your health on track. Taking a role as a corporate sponsor, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas shared Know your Numbers information and nutrition tips with more than 1,500 people attending MegaFest in July. Additionally, BCBSTX Medical Director Dr. Esteban Lopez moderated a panel emphasizing the importance of CKD and COPD screenings and steps to avoid hospitalization. Continuing the proactive theme, Blue Bear℠ assisted our community partner, Fit and Faithful Living (hyperlink) to lead participants in a “Be in the know about your health” Family Feud-style game.
