DAY, SUNDAY. WE WILL START TO CLEAR OUT. SOME LINGERING SHOWERS MONDAY, BUT WE ARE TRENDING COOLER, UPPER 60s BY TUESDAY. NEXT WEDNESDAY, HUMANA IS PLANNING TO HOST A FREE COMMUNITY WELLNESS DAY AT THEIR KINGSPORT LOCATION. HERE TO TELL US MORE ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU CAN TAKE PART IN IS RANDY KES. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE PICK THANK YOU FOR HAVING US, ANNA. YOU GUYS ARE EXCITED FOR NEXT WEDNESDAY, TELL ME ABOUT WHAT THE PLAN IS FOR THIS FREE WELLNESS DAY. WE HAVE HAD A LOT OF WORK PUT INTO THIS BY A LOT OF PEOPLE. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TWO SECTIONS OF THINGS GOING ON, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE SOME SPECIFIC TIMES FOR CLASSES, AND I THOUGHT MAYBE IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO SHARE WITH THOSE CLASSES WILL BE. THAT WOULD BE GREAT, I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED IN THESE CLASSES, NOT ONLY IS IT FREE, BUT EXPERTS ARE SHARING INFORMATION WITH PEOPLE. RIGHT. I WANT TO MAKE SURE IF THERE IS A PARTICULAR CLASS SOMEONE IS INTERESTED IN, THEY KNOW WHAT TIME IT STARTS. 10 AM, WE WILL HAVE A PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST SCAMS. THIS WILL BE PUT ON BY TOM PATTON FROM THE KINGSPORT CITY POLICE. AND, THERE IS SO MUCH STUFF GOING ON NOWADAYS WITH THAT TYPE OF STUFF, WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO COME INTO THE OFFICE, AND ASK US DIFFERENT QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR YOU ARE CALLING ME, DO YOU KNOW WHO IS CALLING ME, AND DIFFERENT THINGS OF THAT. THAT IS A GOOD PROGRAM. AT 11 AM, NO THE 10 SIGNS OF ALL TIMERS DISEASE. THAT WILL BE PRESENTED BY TABATHA EBERT FROM THE ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION. ANOTHER GOOD PREVENTIVE TYPE MEASURE FOR US TO BE AWARE OF WITH OUR HEALTH CONDITIONS. AT 12 NOON, AND THIS IS ONE THAT I THINK IS INTERESTING. I DON’T KNOW A LOT ABOUT THE CONTENT, BUT FIVE FOODS AND MEDICINES YOU SHOULD NOT MIX. I AM LUCKY I TAKE MEDICATIONS YET. BUT IF I DID, ONE OF THE PROBLEMS I WOULD HAVE IS KNOWING WHAT TO TAKE AND WHAT NOT TO TAKE, ESPECIALLY MIXING WITH FOODS. I THINK THAT IS SUCH A GREAT CLASS II, NOT ONLY FOR YOURSELF, BUT MAYBE FOR A CAREGIVER AS WELL, RIGHT? THEN, WE HAVE GOT AT 1 PM, AND EACH ONE OF THESE AS YOU WILL NOTICE A STARTING ON THE HOUR. A FIRE AND SAFETY AND FALL PREVENTION CLASS THAT WILL BE PUT ON BY ONE OF THE REPRESENTATIVE FROM THE KINGSPORT FIRE DEPARTMENT. AND LAST AT 2 PM, THE LAST CLASS WE WILL HAVE IS WE CALL IT TECH 101. AND ONE OF OUR STAFF WILL PUT THAT ON. JEFF WILSON. HE TALKS A LITTLE BIT ABOUT BEGINNERS FOR THE INTERNET, PEOPLE THAT WANT TO LEARN HOW TO ACCESS SOME OF THE BASIC THINGS, SO THAT IS REALLY INTERESTING. WE GET A LOT OF REQUESTS FOR THAT TYPE OF CLASS. THOSE OF THE FIVE CLASSES. THAT SOUNDS GREAT. WHILE THOSE CLASSES ARE GOING ON, THERE IS ALSO GOING TO BE OTHER EVENTS HAPPENING THAT WILL BE TAKING PLACE, RIGHT? THEY WILL BE ONGOING THROUGHOUT THE DAY FROM 10:00 UNTIL 3:00. WE HAVE GOT A DIFFERENT THINGS THAT WILL BE GOING ON. I’LL TRY TO GET THROUGH THESE. THE FIRST WOULD BE A BLOOD PRESSURE, WEIGHT, AND HEIGHT SCREENING. THEN WE HAVE GOT HOME TEST KITS FOR HEALTH SCREENING. IN 365, WHICH OUR HUMANA MEMBERS WILL BE FAMILIAR WITH THIS, WHICH IS SIMPLY A PROGRAM THAT WE HAVE THAT REWARDS PEOPLE FOR DOING THE PREVENTIVE SERVICES, AND KEEPING UP WITH THEIR DOCTOR, AND DOING GOOD THINGS FOR OVERALL HEALTH. A DIABETIC A RETINA EYE EXAM WILL BE SET UP FOR THAT FOR PEOPLE THAT ARE INTERESTED. AND, THIS IS FOR THE PUBLIC. IT IS NOT JUST FOR PEOPLE INSURED WITH HUMANA. SCREENINGS WERE INSECURITY ABOUT FOOD, WE WILL HAVE THAT GOING ON, AND A BREAST CANCER AND MAMMOGRAM SCREENING WILL BE SET UP THERE IN OUR OFFICE. PLANET FITNESS AND SILVER SNEAKERS WILL BE THERE TO TALK ABOUT. WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE SILVER SNEAKERS PROGRAM, I LOVE THIS PROGRAM, TOO. THEY COVER A LOT OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF EXERCISE PROGRAMS AT DIFFERENT LOCATIONS AROUND TOWN. NOW, PARTICULAR TO OUR OFFICE, WE HAVE A YOGA CLASS THAT IS SET UP ON TUESDAYS AND THURSDAYS AT 2:30. MELISSA NELSON HANDLES THAT FOR US. THAT IS A GROWING CLASS EVERY WEEK, WE SEE MORE AND MORE ANTICIPATING WITH THAT. SO, LAST BUT NOT LEAST IS HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES WILL BE THERE. AND, THE MAIN THING THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO DO WHEN SHARING INFORMATION IS TO HELP PEOPLE UNDERSTAND SOME OF THE ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS THEY MAY QUALIFY FOR THAT THEY DON’T KNOW ABOUT. THAT CAN BE VERY HELPFUL. THESE ARE GREAT EVENTS THAT WILL BE HAPPENING. YOU MAY RECOGNIZE SOME OF THE REPRESENTATIVES FROM HUMANA. HE WILL SEE THEM THERE AT THIS BIG EVENT, AT THIS FREE WELLNESS DAY, RIGHT? THEY WILL BE HELPING US, THIS STUFF IS A SEASONED STAFF, TOO. MOST HAVE BEEN WITH THE COMPANY 10 YEARS OR MORE, SOME AS MANY AS 14 YEARS. WE HAVE GOT A STAFF IS KNOWLEDGEABLE TO HELP PEOPLE. YOU CAN COME AND LEARN FROM ALL OF THESE CLASSES, FROM ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT EVENTS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, YOU CAN ASK ANY STAFF MEMBERS YOU SEE ON YOUR SCREEN.
