Midlands Go Red For Women Chairperson Announced
Aug 27, 2012
COLUMBIA, SC - August 27, 2012 - Terry Peace, Senior Vice President, Group and Individual Division of BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina, has been named the 2013 Go Red For Women Luncheon chairperson. The May 8, 2013 Luncheon will be held at the Hilton Columbia Center and will expand awareness, promote education, and build passion among Midlands women to know their personal risk for heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women.
Combining the perspective gained from a hospital-based nursing career with the experience gained during more than a decade in senior positions within South Carolina’s leading health insurer, Terry Peace is a seasoned health insurance executive.
Her unique perspective informs her decision-making in her role as senior vice president of the group and individual division within the BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina enterprise of companies. As a leader of one of the company’s most important lines of business, she is responsible for providing executive management and strategic direction related to all accounts, sales and account retention activities as well as leading all the division’s operational activities.
Terry also uses her managerial skills outside of work as she serves in leadership capacities in charitable organizations throughout the Midlands. Her personal passion lies with improving the health of women and children.
“It is my privilege to serve as chair for the Midlands Go Red for Women campaign,” said Peace. “So many people are still unaware that heart disease, while often preventable, remains the No.1 killer of women. Through this opportunity, I hope to raise awareness and also encourage women to take action—to care for themselves as they do for their families.”
