Oral Health: Focus Area Evaluation


The Blue Cross NC Foundation is seeking proposals for an evaluation partner to help us explore and answer questions specific to our Oral Health focus area to inform our emergent strategy process. Through this evaluative work, we hope to tell the story of our work to-date and deepen our understanding of what is effective at increasing access to quality, affordable oral health services.

Retrospectively, we are looking to capture insights, impact, and document the story of how our investments have contributed to our generational goal of increasing access to quality, affordable oral health services. This evaluation will serve as a tool to synthesize data, findings, and insights from across the Oral Health portfolio to support learning around our previous and current investments. It should explore what has and hasn’t worked and should also help us assess the extent to which the work has addressed health and racial equity.
