Traveling wellness program comes to SBC

 

Lewisburg — About 20 area businesses are taking part in EvangelicalCommunityHospital’s traveling wellness program, which brings health care to businesses to help their employees get healthier.  Jared Herzog is wellness educator at EvangelicalCommunityHospital and visited Sunbury Broadcasting Corporation on Friday to work with interested employees.

 

He said, “We can do wellness screenings such as a lipid panel and glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure testing.  We can also set up wellness, educational and fitness programs for the employees.  Each employee who participates is monitored from year to year to see the progress they are making and to be provided with continual care.  Herzog said, “We start with a baseline.

 

We will continue to do screenings with them and check on a yearly basis to see their progress.  We can alter their program if they need more exercise or dietary changes.” Herzog says they are always looking to grow their wellness program and hope more businesses will get involved.  To find out more you can go to www.evanhospital.com and click on health and wellness.
