Our Featured Members

1199SEIU members just like you share stories of how they gave their health a boost and many times gained a whole new outlook on life.

Do you have a healthy story to share?

We’re always looking for the opportunity to spotlight members who are protecting their health by losing weight, quitting smoking, bringing a chronic condition under control or just improving their lifestyle in general. If you have made positive changes in your health — or are just starting to — we want to hear from you! To share your story with your fellow members in an upcoming issue of For Your Benefit, please contact the Fund at Communications@1199Funds.org.
