Health Fairs, Mini Health Fairs & Clinics 2018
Join us this year at our 6th annual series of health fairs and clinics to learn how Every Choice Makes a Difference when it comes to your health and wellbeing.
Contrary to popular belief, we are not guaranteed the health of our parents, either good or bad. What you do with your available resources has more impact on your health than simply the genes you are born with. This concept is referred to as epigenetics. The food you eat, the amount of sleep you get, the social interactions you have and even the career you've chosen all affect your health.
You have a choice to make a change
You make the choices. Are you content with your health status? What would you say if you were told that simply making small changes - changing a choice or two - could alter your life's course? Would you then consider changing just one choice? You can do it. And we'd like to help you.
NEW this year:
- Health Coaching Opportunity: Through our health fairs and clinics, the St. Louis - Kansas City Carpenters Regional Health Plan is offering all biometric screening participants the option for FREE health coaching when you have a biometric screening. A Health Coach is a supportive mentor and wellness authority helping clients feel their best through food & lifestyle changes by tailoring individualized wellness programs to meet their clients' needs. Want more information? Let us know you are interested in health coaching and we will reach out to you beginning in November to set up a coaching schedule for the new year. Remember, you must also participate in a biometric screening at one of our locations, or through a Quest lab (refer to the Outlying Areas information below).
- Onsite Smoking Cessation in Kansas City and St. Louis: Interested in smoking cessation but need more support? Sign-ups will be available at the Kansas City and St. Louis Health Fairs for pilot onsite smoking cessation classes. Classes will be held in conjunction with The Great American Smokeout in November through early December. Join our mailing list for more information on these classes as it becomes available.
- Sign-ups for Free Financial Wellness Consultations with a Financial Advisor: Financial Advisors from various banking institutions will be available at our health fairs and most clinics with sign-ups for free 30-min financial consultations. Available in St. Louis, Kansas City, Festus, Wentzville, Jefferson City, Springfield, MO and Edwardsville, IL.
