Aetna Voices of Health is part of Aetna’s ongoing commemoration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This national competition recognizes agencies that are working in their communities to encourage racial and ethnic equality in health care. We are honoring local heroes who embody the values of Dr. King and are aligned with Aetna’s mission to promote access to health care for all.



In April 2011, Aetna announced a contribution of $1,275,000 to the building of the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial in Washington, DC. As part of our ongoing commitment, we created a national competition to recognize local agencies that are working in their communities to encourage racial and ethnic equality in health care. We want to honor local heroes who embody the values of Dr. King and are aligned with Aetna’s mission to promote access to health care for all.

Members of the Aetna Community Relations and Urban Marketing team evaluated hundreds of organizations across the country. They named 33 organizations “Aetna Voices of Health.” These organizations received a $1,000 prize and are now in competition to be one of the top two nationwide winners.

We will award the top two organizations:

  • 1st place $30,000
  • 2nd place $20,000

The winners will be determined by public votes. Find out more about the Aetna Voices for Health local winners and vote for your choice to receive national recognition.
