Health and Benefits Fair around the corner

The 2009 UCAR Health and Benefits Fair takes place March 3 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Center Green. The fair, sponsored by the Wellness Advisory Committee, is free and open to UCAR employees, retirees, spouses/partners, and dependent children 18-25 years old.

 A sample of some of the fair’s attractions includes blood screening results and private consultations; screenings for osteoporosis, skin cancer, vision and hearing, and lung capacity; body mass analysis; chiropractic assessments and resources; organ donor information; chair massage; acupuncture; nutritional resources; fitness demonstrations; health and wellness information booths; refreshments; and prizes and giveaways. This year’s fair will also feature new vendors, services, and resources.

 Staff and others who wish to participate in the blood screening must register for blood draw sessions, which are held prior to the fair at each of UCAR’s main facilities. A 12-hour fast is required, and light refreshments are provided.
