Every day, millions of Americans are falling through gaps in our healthcare system. Some lack the means to pay for their medicines; some don't know which drug to take, or which drugs are safe to take with others.
"Give Health a Hand" a nationwide initiative launched by the Medco Foundation - offers every American the opportunity to help others get healthy.

Volunteer to live a healthier life is not just something we say at UnitedHealthcare, it is something we do. More than 70 percent of our employees volunteer to help others. Through our collaboration with the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), UnitedHealthcare is championing this volunteer spirit and helping launch a new era of service that can strengthen America and help people live healthier lives.
Volunteering and community service can be a powerful force for improving both our communities and our personal health and well-being. Individuals who volunteer experience greater happiness, increased self-esteem, and improved mental and physical health. Coming together to serve others makes a positive impact on everyone.
UnitedHealthcare recognizes Americans are the most generous givers of their time, and we can't relent. Join us in supporting the iParticipate movement to build a stronger, healthier America.
Welcome Back Veterans
They were there when we needed them. They served us all and kept us safe. Yet hundreds of thousands of American veterans, home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, at times can not access basic treatments and get the support needed to enable them to transition back into civilian life. They need our help. It's our turn to serve them.
Welcome Back Veterans (WBV) was created to inspire Americans to give back to our returning veterans and their families. The mental health issues they face are well documented, but too many people still don't know about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) – or what we can do to assist these great men and women.
By giving everyday Americans the tools they need to make a difference, creating a national network of clinics to provide the best care to those who deserve nothing less, and funding groundbreaking research to limit the scope of PTSD, WBV is committed to supporting our returning heroes. All of us can play a part. Join us and find out how at WelcomeBackVeterans.org.
Major League Baseball
For more than a century, Major League Baseball has been an integral part of society. America has embraced baseball as its national pastime throughout the game's unparalleled history. As a social institution with important responsibilities, Major League Baseball realizes that this mantle affords special opportunities.
MLB is honored to make community service and social responsibility a part of all that Major League Baseball stands for to generate awareness and heighten the social consciousness of the importance of giving back.
As part of that obligation, Major League Baseball recognizes and appreciates the enormous sacrifice made by the brave men and women in our armed forces with their Welcome Back Veterans initiative.
With the ability to reach millions of patriotic Americans at ballparks, on television and through the Internet, MLB hopes to showcase this very important issue and help our veterans in their transition from the battlefield back to their lives at home.
