Wellness at NCS
NCS participated in its first health and fitness awareness activity this Spring. We focused on nutrition, fitness and healthy heart awareness with a variety of activities over four weeks. Some of the activities were “eat more fruit” week, “know your veggies” week, a coloring contest for our favorite young artists and several tennis shoe days in which we wore Wellness 2013 t-shirts designed by Partner, Bruce Kamplain. One of the favorite activities was our speaker, Becky Halon, R.N., who shared the story of her 73 minute cardiac arrest followed by her amazing rehabilitation. Becky also demonstrated the American Heart Association’s recommended Hands Only CPR.
Sandy Hieser won a gift card for walking the farthest (380,000 steps/27 days) and Pam Eaton won the contest for walking the closest to the firm average of 7213 steps/day. Congratulations to all who participated!
To wrap up our month-long health awareness, we reviewed the video on how to use our Automated External Defibrillator while enjoying a healthy lunch!
