Learn about Long-life Superfoods!

We all want to live a long, healthy life. What if there were foods that could help make that happen? There are! Register today to attend our online workshop, “Learn about Long-life Superfoods.” A Wellness health educator will introduce you to the best foods for longevity. Plus, there’ll be a special cooking demonstration to show how to incorporate these superfoods into your diet.

Teladoc Primary360

Finding and building a relationship with a primary care physician (PCP) is one of the most important ways you can protect your health and well-being. If you do not have a PCP and need the convenience of seeing one virtually, a Teladoc Primary360 provider can offer you annual exams and preventive care, diagnose and treat health concerns, help manage chronic conditions, prescribe medications and refer you to in-network specialists. Choose a provider based on specialty, language, gender and/or availability, and see this same provider throughout the course of your care.

You’ll even get additional support from a Care Team, including registered nurses, medical assistants and care coordinators. Visit or call (800) TELADOC (835-2362) to find your PCP today.

To learn more about building a relationship with your doctor, visit our Healthy Relationships page.
