Wellness Program

health fair imageAs healthcare workers we know that many of us can avoid chronic conditions simply by carefully watching what we eat, exercising and embracing other healthy habits. We also know that some of us have a higher risk of certain conditions or cancers based on – among many things – family history, environmental risk factors and the lifestyle habits we’ve picked up along the way. And early detection can delay or prevent serious complications.

Fortunately, our comprehensive 1199SEIU benefits give you access to a wide range of preventive screenings at no cost. By checking with your doctor and following the general suggested screening guidelines for hypertension, cholesterol levels, mammograms and PSA (prostate cancer) tests, you can catch existing or potential problems in the early stages, before they lead to more serious issues. And you have many options for getting them. You can visit your doctor for these tests, or come to an 1199SEIU Health Fair to get screened for chronic conditions like hypertension, high cholesterol and diabetes.
