Current Resources and Events
Heart Health Screening
Monday October 16th 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Heart health screenings are offered once per semester, free of charge, through the Bassett Healthcare Network's division of Occupational Health. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Knowing your numbers is an instrumental step in understanding your current heart health status and a great way to provide a road map of important next steps to improve any areas of concern. Employees will receive a blood pressure reading, cholesterol and glucose level assessment, basic physical metrics analysis, and on-the-spot review of all results with a medical provider. 15 minutes is all it will take to establish your cardiac profile! Registration is required. Repeat assessments are encouraged to evaluate your changes.
The Menopause Moment
Focus group Oct. 18th, Nov 1st, & Nov 15th 7 p.m. - 8 p.m.
In recognition of menopause "having a moment" of revived importance with deeper patient education, understanding its impact on women in the workplace (especially higher education), and the need to establish positive coping cultures, Hamilton Wellness is launching our inaugural Menopause Moment focus group. This 3-part series is designed to educate, collaborate and support our Hamilton community. Beginning on National Menopause Day, October 18th! Maureen Hughes will lead an educational presentation on a focus area for that session, followed by discussion with Q&A.
Maureen Hughes is a registered Nurse turned Nurse Coach now available to Hamilton employees for 1-on-1 Wellness coaching with a medical perspective. As a nurse coach, Maureen believes the key to wellness is seeing each person as the sum of their parts and individual story. Her goal is to empower her clients to gain agency over their health and live life to their fullest potential, regardless of their medical conditions. She will work with clients to create a manageable action plan to bridge the gap from where they are to where they want to be as it relates to their wellbeing. Her work focuses on various health issues, including diabetes management, weight loss, and stress management.
