One of the side effects of the coronavirus pandemic is how it has exposed health inequalities in the United States. From how Covid case disproportionately affected communities of color to how vaccines have been more readily made available to white individuals, the systemic racism there is in the health realm is in the open for all to see.

A leading health provider, Anthem (Blue Cross Blue Shield) has joined forces with four WNBA teams – the New York Liberty, Los Angeles Sparks, Atlanta Dream and Indiana Fever – to address this issue.


When either the Liberty, Sparks, Dream or Fever meet up this season, staff and players from both teams will host a community event in the city of the home team.

Anthem, which is based in the Fever’s Indiana backyard, is also making multi-year investments in each team.

As part of Anthem’s commitment to being both a national and local leader, we are working in solidarity with our communities to challenge the status quo and address the factors driving disparities and inequities in our healthcare system and in society as a whole.

–Gail Boudreaux, President/CEO – Anthem, Inc.
