BLOOMFIELD, Conn. -- February 5, 2013
Cigna (NYSE:CI) is making it easier for individuals to learn about and
participate in its long-running monthly behavioral health awareness seminars
for autism, substance abuse and eating disorders. Each seminar topic now has
its own page on the company’s public website, cigna.com, where individuals can
view the schedule, download seminar materials, obtain dial-in information and
play back previous seminars.
It’s easy for people to find information about the seminars on cigna.com.
Simply search for a common word or phrase – such as autism, Asperger,
addiction, alcoholism, drug abuse, anorexia, bulimia – and the first search
result will be a link to the appropriate seminar page.
Each page features a short video that showcases an individual or family member
who is coping with one of these behavioral health issues. The autism page
features Zack’s mom, who talks about the challenges of having a two-year-old
autistic child. On the substance abuse page, Justin describes his road to
addiction, while Hailey describes her battle with food on the eating disorder
Individuals can also use the pages to register for the seminars. While it’s
not required to register in advance, doing so will enable individuals to get
reminders about upcoming seminars.
“We want to engage individuals who need help with these issues, as well as
their family and friends, and offer them fast access to useful information
that can help improve their lives,” said Joan Kennedy, Cigna's vice president
for consumer health engagement. “We are making it easier than ever for people
to participate in these seminars, and our customers have rated the experience
The next autism seminar will be Feb. 14. The next substance abuse seminar will
be Feb. 20. The next eating disorder seminar will be Feb. 26. Each seminar
lasts an hour, including time for questions and answers, and starts at 1 p.m.
