Men’s Wellness Day

Gentlemen, it’s that time of year again, time to head down to the Health Clinic and look after yourself by getting check-ups and learning about common health problems. This Friday, January 8th, the Health Clinic is holding their 3rd Annual Men’s Wellness Day, and I hope you all can make it down. I know you don’t always take that time to make sure you’re healthy, but all of you dads, uncles, brothers and cousins, you mean a lot to our community and we need you healthy!

The Men’s Wellness Day begins at 9:00 am and continues until 3:00 pm. Staff will be there to screen for Diabetes, Blood Pressure, Prostate Cancer (Blood Draw only), Body Mass Index, HIV testing, Dental Screens, Cholesterol Screens with a full lipid panel and much, more. Please take the time and make sure you get those tests! The Clinic also has some great incentive items for participating and they’re raffling two Chainsaws, a set of golf clubs, a tablesaw, a tool set, a fishing pole, a roadside safety kit, a back revitalizer, a massage pillow, a dart board, a golfers putting game, two thermoses, two Seahawk cooler bags with coffee mugs, and Tulalip Bingo donated some gift Certificates for Bingo. You do not need to be present to win, but you do need to participate.

And just as a reminder that employees, with their supervisor’s approval, may have two hours to attend the Men’s Wellness Day. If you have any questions about the Wellness Day, contact the Health Clinic, 360-651-4511.
