Kick Off 2018 Learning About Wellness at Annual Fair

The Cedars-Sinai Employee Wellness Program is hosting its sixth annual Employee Wellbeing Fair on Friday, Jan. 12, from 7 a.m.-3 p.m. in Harvey Morse Auditorium. Join dozens of vendors and Cedars-Sinai departments to learn about various aspects of health.

This year, the fair will include information on discounted fitness centers, on weight management programs, healthy eating tips, and support for emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

In addition to representatives from Cedars-Sinai programs such as Work and Life Matters, Healthy Habits and Spiritual Care, vendors such as LA Fitness, Weight Watchers and BoxUnion boxing gym will be present. This year also will feature a Zen Zone, with free massages and oxygen chairs.

"I am really excited about the fair this year. We have some new vendors ready to help tackle things like finances, stress and better eating habits. Also, make sure to stop by the virtual reality booth," said Mitch Martens, Employee Wellness administrator. "We also are encouraging employees to write down their wellness resolutions to help kick-start the new year."

Participants are encouraged to visit vendors and booths that support their wellbeing goals. Employees can collect stamps at the booths and be entered into drawings for a bike, a Fitbit and a pair of tickets to Disneyland.

The annual fair supports the Employee Wellness Program’s mission of creating a culture of employee wellness that focuses on emotional, spiritual, environmental, physical, social, intellectual and occupational wellbeing.
