HR Training has scheduled upcoming sessions to help employees make healthy lifestyle choices and to navigate the Banner system.

‘Creating a Healthy Home’

Let’s face it, managing a wholesome lifestyle and creating a healthy home can be challenging. And it’s not always about diet and exercise. Sometimes it’s as simple as knowing your health care choices or figuring out which procedure or prescription will offer the least out-of-pocket expense. Whether it’s exploring preventative care options or trying to decide when to visit a physician, Cigna is here to help.

Cigna rep Scarlet Smarker will be on-campus to host “Creating a Healthy Home” from 8 to 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 19, in BSC 343. The hour-long session will feature details about Cigna’s Lifestyle Management Programs, Healthy Rewards Discount Program, Preventative Care options and Telehealth service. She will also be available from 9:30 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. for one-on-one meetings with employees. If you have questions about your health coverage or the various services offered through Cigna, stop by for a visit. Drop-ins are welcome, with appointments taking priority.
