The Health Fairs will offer giveaways, raffles and health assessments. The popular AngioScreenings are back; painless, noninvasive screenings for risks of heart disease and stroke. Within minutes, you will receive a printout of the ultrasound (in color). In addition, the following immunizations will be available at all Health Fairs: Flu, TDAP (pertussis), Pneumonia and Shingles. Employees must have a prescription from their physician to receive the Shingles shot. Risk Management will be providing the popular Paraffin hand treatments and Employee Assistance Program (EAP) will be present as well.

Employee Benefit Services will also hold its first Wellness tour in partnership with Humana: The Humana Vitality Tour. The Humana Vitality Tour is all about wellness: doing your vitality checks and getting a better understanding on how the wellness program works. It is a great opportunity to learn how to reap rewards just by making healthy choices. Remember that doing the Vitality Check earns you 2,000 Vitality Points, which will reflect on your Humana Vitality account.

Additional information regarding the Health Fairs, Humana Vitality Tour and how to schedule appointments for the AngioScreenings, and immunization shots will be announced throughout the month.
