Oasis Albuquerque Receives $40K Grant From BCBSNM for Falls Prevention Programs

May. 22, 2017

Oasis Albuquerque recently learned that Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico would extend their support of the Oasis falls prevention programs.

Oasis Albuquerque is the recipient of a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico Healthy Kids, Healthy Families grant in the amount of $40,000 to support falls prevention programs offered at OASIS, including Better Balance and ExerStart movement classes.

These offerings focus on two priority areas from a menu of evidence-based health programs – increasing physical activity through effective, age-appropriate exercise programs; and avoiding falls through fall risk awareness and reduction.

Oasis Executive Director Kathleen Raskob said, "Thank you to Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico for continuing to invest in Oasis health and wellness programs, specifically falls prevention programs. We are extremely grateful for their support."
