Community

CDPHP is so much more than a health insurance company. We’re on the ground in the community where you live, and we’re working to improve the lives and health of those in your neighborhoods, schools, and workplaces. Through our Charity of Choice program, employees can volunteer their time, talents, and resources to support one worthwhile charity each year. In addition, we sponsor the Workforce Team Challenge, health and fitness expos, health forums, and other community events that promote a healthy lifestyle.

You can check out our upcoming community events anytime. You’ll find additional, detailed information about future events and sponsorships, as well as recaps after the fact so that you can see who was there and what was accomplished. We’re everywhere you are, in the Capital District and beyond. Won’t you join us?
