County having employee health seminarPublished 12:08am Wednesday, April 25, 2012
We the Adams County Board of Supervisors have invited Blue Cross Blue Shield to put on a health seminar to educate county employees on their medical benefits.
We anticipate that this seminar will make county employees more informed regarding their insurance and services that Blue Cross Blue Shield provides.
BCBS will discuss with them the importance of a Healthy You!
Healthy You! is a wellness benefit that provides county employees and their covered dependents with an annual wellness visit with our network provider.
It will teach county employees how to manage their health, such as blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and weight control, encourage having a yearly physical and promote a tobacco-free lifestyle.
Healthy You! will identify potential health issues before they become a serious health problem.
This seminar not only will help county employees, but it will also help the county’s future health care costs.
We the Adams County Board of Supervisors has made it mandatory that each employee attend one of the four seminars and encourage spouses of employees to attend.
The seminars will begin at 9:30 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m. today and Thursday.
Each seminar will be approximately 45 minutes long.
Angela Gibson Hutchins is the Adams County Board of Supervisor for District 3.
