Wellness, Despite the Weather


Pat Kaleta, Kimberley Minkel, Michael Peca 
This year's Wellness Fair was Wednesday March 15 at the NFTA's Metropolitan Transportation Center. It completely ignored the ill and unfair weather outside.

Around 30 vendors attended, addressing all aspects of health and wellness. Some of the highlights:

  • Free glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure testing 
  • Food demonstrations 
  • Stretching techniques 
  • Free voluntary vaccinations (flu & pneumonia)

  • Personalized health assessment with Blue Cross Blue Shield 
  • Legal, financial and family resources 
  • Pharmacists, nutritionists, dietitians on site 
  • Tai Chi demonstrations from the Toaist Tai Chi society 


Once again, our Employee Assistant Program’s Christine Farrow and Pennette Green put together a wonderful - and meaningful - event.
