Pathways to a Healthy Kansas is the largest community grant program funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield Kansas. The Pathways program was established in order to provide community coalitions the resources they need to remove barriers to health and engage communities to live a healthier lifestyle. Grant recipients are required to engage in a cross-sector collaboration in order to address the program’s seven focus areas in order to create sustainable change in communities. The seven areas are community policy, community well-being, food retail, health care, restaurants, schools, and worksites. The focus areas aim to promote active living, healthy eating, and tobacco prevention.
