Back to Blog Home >>

We’d like to take a moment to recognize this real-life superwoman. Not only is she the mother of four children, but she’s also been a Human Resources representative for nearly 19 years.

I read an article recently and it prompted me to do something funny at my desk: I held my right arm out to the side, twisted it as far as it would go, and had a good look at my skin on the underside. Yep, it was several shades paler than the topside, it was nice and smooth (working on the "toned" - Michelle Obama I'm not - yet) and there wasn't a single freckle.

Back to Blog Home >>

How do Florida Blue employees pursue their health? The social media team had an opportunity to ask just that at the recent Diversity Expo, part of a larger Diversity Conference held at the Jacksonville campus each year. Each employee had a unique answer to the question “What do you do in the pursuit of health?” We’d like to know if you move, dance, paddleboard or laugh in your pursuit of health. Tell us about it in our comments below!
