We Did It!

We finished the 8-week Creation Health seminar for the City of Greeneville employees that was being held out at Public Works once a week this spring, which actually ended up lasting for 11 weeks due to snow and sickness cancellations along the way!

In our final session, we discussed N - Nutrition, how it is "the fuel that drives our whole system" and how "we really are what we eat."


Here our attendees are pictured taking a "healthy eating self-test." You can see that we had a great turn out each week, around 35 city employees who earned wellness points by coming, which in turn help keep their health insurance costs down. And all the while, they learn the 8 principle areas that affect our overall health and well-being.

I would say it was a success and I look forward to another round of seminars with more city employees in the fall!

Happy Weekend, friends!
