Humana Joins University of Louisville for Out of the Darkness Campus Walk

Every year suicide claims more lives than war, murder, and natural disasters combined, according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). In order to cover gaps in funding for research and suicide prevention, AFSP hosts Out of the Darkness walks on high school and college campuses around the country.


On April 8, Humana joined the University of Louisville for their event, which raised nearly $10,000. Humana supported the event as part of its initiative to improve the health of the community 20 percent by 2020. Behavioral health is focus areas for Humana and its partners on the Louisville Health Advisory Board. The behavioral health committee of the Board is designing and implementing community-wide, evidence-based, and data-driven programs to eliminate suicides in Louisville.

The University of Louisville’s Out of the Darkness walk had more than 150 participants, including Noemi Robinson, an analyst for Humana.

Noemi said, “Suicide not only harms the immediate family but also the community. Sunday was really cold but walking was an amazing way to support UofL and our community.”

Watch additional coverage of the event on WDRB and WLKY.
