Home Care Benefit Fund Expands Outreach Through Online Benefits Channel
The Home Care Benefit Fund's (HCBF) Benefits Channel provides your 1199SEIU employees and members with access to videos and webinars geared toward helping them protect their health and learn more about their benefits. Members may view videos on topics such as preventing diabetes or promoting a healthy pregnancy, as well as participate in webinars on improving their financial literacy or applying for their pension. Chief Medical Officer Dr. Van Dunn's "Healthy Living Spotlight" video series shares up-to-date information on preventing hypertension, the importance of getting a flu shot and accessing telehealth to discuss possible symptoms of COVID-19. Members may also view archives of the HCBF's financial wellness series led by financial expert Ryan C. Mack. Encourage your 1199SEIU employees and members to subscribe to the Benefits Channel to receive alerts when new content is posted.
