The Blue Door Neighborhood Center is your new neighbor at the 111th Street Gateway Retail Center in Chicago’s historic Pullman community.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) has been hard at work, meeting with community leaders, churches, elected officials and other organizations to learn how we can best support a thriving, healthy community.

So what is the Blue Door Neighborhood Center? It is a neighborhood center that offers classes and workshops to the community at no cost. The center will be a space to learn, connect and focus on your health.

Here are just some of the services we’ll offer:

  • Classes on healthy meal planning, exercising and relaxation techniques
  • Workshops on managing health conditions, like heart disease and asthma
  • Resources for understanding and using health insurance
  • Tips for connecting to community services that provide food and transportation

“We are thrilled to be contributing to the positive momentum in Pullman and the surrounding communities,” said Laron Taylor, director of the Blue Door Neighborhood Center. “It is such an honor to serve the community by providing access to health education classes and information about social services that help residents live healthier.”
