Hopkins Printing Conducts Health Fair for Employees, Spouses
COLUMBUS, OH—Oct. 17, 2012—The Hopkins Printing lobby and training room were transformed into a learning center and health fair for all of its employee owners earlier this week. A team of nurses from Mt. Carmel Medical Center conducted 10-minute health screenings for employees as well as their spouses. These screenings measured glucose levels, cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure and BMI.
Hopkins has encouraged employees to “Know their Numbers” when it comes to health care for several years.
When asked about the campaign, Hopkins HR Director Michelle Waterhouse said, “It’s important for our employees to ‘know their numbers’ because preventing, delaying or reversing the negative impact of bad numbers is easier with a proactive approach. Hopkins plans to bring wellness into the workplace in 2013 and this was a great kick-off for feeling better and improving our health knowledge.”
The health fair also presented several options for improving financial health and knowledge. Vendors set up booths and shared information on the importance of living both a healthy physical and financial lifestyle. In addition, representatives from Costco, New Balance, Body by Vi, Comfort Keepers, AGLA and Ohio Health handed out coupons, samples and information on their products and services.
Many of Hopkins’ support vendors provided prizes for the day, which included gift cards, sports memorabilia, apparel, coolers, a grill and two adult bicycles. Hopkins values the safety and well being of its employees and appreciates the support from its vendors for this fun and educational endeavor.
