On November 8, Rollins joined together with ICUBA, Blue Cross/Blue Shield (BCBSF) and Walgreens Health Initiatives to organize “Your Health is Key”, an annual wellness event aimed at providing free and confidential health screenings with same-visit results to the Rollins community.
“This event is always a great way to get our community engaged in a healthy lifestyle and I was excited to see more than 130 people participate this year,” said Human Resources Manager David Zajchowski.
Held in the Galloway Room, the event featured free flu shots for ICUBA/BCBSF members and an HR Derby, which gave attendees the chance to test their batting skills on the Wii and win prizes. Attendees also received free nutrition and fitness tips, a wellness profile, free individual coaching, and complimentary healthy snacks and prizes.
“I had a really wonderful experience at the wellness event,” said Gift and Records Specialist Leslie Fair. “I can’t remember the last time that I’ve had an overall work-up and consultation on my health. Despite my misgivings about giving a blood sample, Shelda did such a great job. All in all, I had a great bill of health, and I can’t wait to get a comparison next year to see whether I’ve been able to improve my scores.”
Heidi Limongi of Residential Life, one of the event's many volunteers, thought the health fair was valuable and important. “The goal of the day was to promote health and that goal was met,” said Limongi. “People could check their blood glucose, get their flu shot, receive an eye screening and more. The wellness of our Rollins family is so important and it’s clear that the employees so greatly appreciate Human Resources for planning such an awesome day.”
