Message from the Board: Get Healthy Utah: A Gift to the Community

Chet Loftis

R. Chet Loftis is the Managing Director of PEHP Health & Benefits, a public sector health plan that covers over 170,000 members. He is also the new Board Chair for Get Healthy Utah.

Good things don’t happen by chance. They require passionate and capable people who envision what could be, help others see the same, and work through the obstacles, complexities, and challenges to produce something of value.  

Get Healthy Utah is a thing of value—a gift, truly.   For the last 10 years, it has sought to unite the community around improving the health and wellbeing of all Utahns. As far as causes go, it may be hard to find a better or more important one, especially given the direction of current demographic trends.  

None of this would be possible without Greg Bell, who founded Get Healthy Utah and has served as Chair from its inception. Greg is a giant in our community. Someone that so many of us look up to and seek to emulate. Get Healthy Utah represents Greg’s commitment to make a positive, lasting impact on our community. A commitment that has taken shape and form as others have joined the cause with their energy and insights.

We live in a great place of good people and natural beauty. It is an honor to be part of a collective effort to improve the health and wellbeing of all Utahns. To feel pride in what has been done and to look forward to the opportunities ahead. Good things don’t happen by chance.
