We have a strong track record of supporting community wellness events like the Heart Walk, March of Dimes, Relay for Life, and the McLeod Sports Medicine 5K and 10K Challenge Run/Walk. Our departments and McLeod teams always enthusiastically participate in a variety of events to promote the overall well-being of the people in our region.
I am encouraged by how well McLeod Health people respond to the events we sponsor to promote health education and wellness. We recently hosted our first “Industry Health Day,” to support local industry employees in learning about their health and the resources McLeod offers. This effort was supported by over 16 McLeod departments and 50 members of our team; all helping to continue our mission to improve the overall health status of those in our community.
The “Industry Health Day” was similar to the Health Resource Expo offered to McLeod staff during benefit enrollment. If you participated in that event, you were able to receive free health screenings, health related information, and obtain your personalized results.
[Note: To receive a copy of your results and a personalized report, participants can log into the system of our wellness partner, Viverae, at http://www.myviverae.com or call the Member Service Center at 1-888-VIVERAE.].
I hope you have reviewed your personalized report. While we do not have access to the individual information, we will have a composite of all who participated in the health screenings. We plan to allow this information to help plan wellness programs for our people in 2010 and 2011.
