A Healthy Reminder: Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in New Hampshire Distributes Preventive Health Guidelines

MANCHESTER, N.H., July 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to support the good health of State of New Hampshire workers and their family members, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in New Hampshire (Anthem) has sent out comprehensive preventive health guidelines to all state employees.

"A healthy lifestyle really hinges on two key components," says Richard P. Lafleur, M.D., F.A.C.P, medical director, Anthem.  "The first part is 'self-help' – what we do for ourselves such as a good diet, regular program of exercise, and other healthy behaviors.  The second happens in your doctor's office and consists of the regular tests, health screenings, and immunizations we all need to stay healthy and to detect possible issues."

All employees have received comprehensive guidelines aimed at children and adults.  "These guidelines are designed to provide State of New Hampshire members and their families with a healthy road map of recommended screenings and immunizations," said Denise McDonough, regional vice president of sales, Anthem.
