The Faces of Wellness program looks for Albertans who are everyday champions for wellness in their communities.

Whether that’s making positive lifestyle changes toward becoming healthier, promoting a health-related cause, making the most of life while living with a chronic condition, standing up for mental health or being a role model for others. In 2021 Alberta Blue Cross® recognized Albertans who took steps toward living healthier lives through the new Faces of Wellness award.
