Health and Wellness Day 2010 features a ‘Focus on Education’

Stock image of 'Good Health, This Way' freeway signA focus on smart choices in both health care and lifestyle is the organizing principle of SMU’s 2010 Health and Wellness Day Oct. 21. Faculty and staff members can learn more about the University’s health plans, take their annual flu shots, get chair massages and more during the fair, scheduled for 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center’s lower level.

The “Focus on Education” theme reflects a trend toward “more preventive care and better consumerism of medical benefits and health care in general,” says Lorea Belle Seidel, associate director of human resources.

This year’s schedule:

Faculty and staff members can sign up on site for free cholesterol and glucose screenings from Baylor’s Jack and Jane Hamilton Heart and Vascular Hospital, as well as for free skin cancer screenings from Consulting Dermatologic Specialists.

Massage therapists from SMU Recreational Sports will give free 10-minute chair massages with on-site signup.

In addition, Concentra will provide free health screenings to faculty and staff members who sign up in advance. Refer to the Concentra packet mailed to your home address or e-mail wellpower@smu.edu for more information.
