Vote Today! Someone Cares Inc. one of five nonprofits selected to participate in the 2019 Aetna Voices of Health Competition

September 25, 2019

Aetna, a CVS Health company, announced today that online voting is underway for the 2019 “Aetna Voices of Health” program at www.aetnavoicesofhealth.com. Voices of Health is a competition and celebration of grassroots non-profit organizations across the country that are working to address social determinants of health in their communities.

The 102 Voices of Health participants aim to promote health and well-being by addressing a wide range of community issues such as childhood obesity, access to affordable prescriptions and health care services, and providing food to the homeless, just to name a few. The voting period runs from September 9 through October 13. 

Aetna will award $20,000 to the organization that receives the most online votes in its market. Participating markets include: Atlanta; Central Pennsylvania; Charlotte, NC; Cincinnati, OH; Cleveland, OH; Columbus, OH; Detroit; Fresno, CA; Houston; Inland Empire, CA; Jacksonville, FL; King County, WA; Los Angeles; Louisville, KY; New York City1; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh, Santa Clara, CA; South Florida; and Tacoma, WA.

All organizations participating in this year’s Voices of Health competition were selected in April, during a public nomination period.  

“We at Aetna have an amazing opportunity, and responsibility, to improve the health and well-being of our communities by focusing on how we address social determinants of health,” said Floyd Green, vice president of Aetna’s Community Affairs. “While Voices of Health is a competition, the program aims to help establish community-based networks for the organizations to leverage each other’s services, allowing for more access to those who need them.”

Campaigning for Votes

The Aetna “Voices of Health” website will feature a one-minute video from each organization describing how the prize money would help it further its mission. Organizations will be able to advocate for votes in different ways, including sharing their videos through social media and other communication channels.
