Wellmark receives NAACP award
Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield has received the 2010 Merit Employer of the Year Award from the Des Moines National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Several of Wellmark’s programs contributed to its receiving the award, including its Diversity and Inclusion curriculum, Diversity Awareness Month and an Inclusion Council that was established in 2006.
