The Local 103, I.B.E.W. Health Benefit Plan Wellness Program is a relatively new benefit available to our members and their families. Our mission is to promote the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle to all that are interested. Our programs and initiatives are intended to create awareness and provide educational opportunities in five key wellness related areas: Prevention, Smoking cessation, Nutrition, Fitness and Stress management.
Our program is evolving under the guidance of our Wellness Coordinator, Kaitlyn Gambino Sherman, RN. To date we have implemented smoking cessation programs and support, a wellness lecture series featuring prominent members of the medical community, blood drives, onsite health screenings, health fairs and ongoing communications intended to create greater awareness of all that is available to our members. We have already witnessed some amazing results and we know the onsite screenings work as we have at least two local 103 members who “simply would not be alive today” had we not identified some serious health issues that led to immediate treatment.
The great news is that there is much more to come. Please be on the lookout for future communications, check this web page for updates and take advantage of the web based resources included on the sidebar. As always please contact the Fund Office at (617) 288‐5999 with any questions regarding your benefits or the wellness resources that are available to you.
