Monitoring and planning
As part of the May 14 fair, the HealthyU Employee Wellness Program is sponsoring a Screening Zone. For just 10 Wellness Dollars, individuals may choose to participate in any or all of the following health screenings: bone density, blood pressure, blood glucose and vision.
Health professionals from Christiana Care Health System, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Delaware, National Vision Administrators and Employee Wellness will provide immediate results of the screenings and discuss them with participants on an individual basis.
New at the fair is an Interactive Area where employees will have the opportunity to try a variety of items that support a culture of health in the workplace. Treadmill and bicycle desks, ergonomic chairs, various smart phone applications and bicycles for commuting to work will be showcased throughout the day.
In addition, the Newark Bicycle Committee has coordinated this year’s Bike to Work Day event to take place on May 14 from 7:30-10 a.m. on the Trabant University Center patio. Speakers will be University President Patrick Harker, Delaware Secretary of Transportation Shailen Bhatt, State Sen. David Sokola, State Rep. Paul Baumbach and Newark Mayor Vance Funk III.
This event is intended to highlight National Bike Week (May 13-17) in the Newark community.
