Winter 2020

We know how much you value your health coverage through your Benefit Fund. In this issue of For Your Benefit, you will meet our featured 1199SEIU member, Oliveen Cowans-Mitchell, a Certified Nursing Assistant at the Hebrew Home at Riverdale, who used her benefits to take charge of her health. Oliveen shares her story of how the pre-diabetes counseling she received from the Benefit Funds’ Wellness Department helped her develop healthy cooking and eating habits to get her blood sugar levels under control, losing 23 pounds in the process.

In this edition, we also look at the impact that mental health can have on our overall well-being, and share the resources your Benefit Fund provides to you and your loved ones who may be struggling. Financial stress is one struggle that can affect our physical and mental health as well, so we are pleased to offer our free Online Financial Health series again this spring. Whether you are new to the series or taking a refresher course, we are sure you will find valuable tips and strategies. And much more »
