VMH to award Live Healthy Iowa participation prizes

Veterans Memorial Hospital will again be awarding prizes to all those in Allamakee and northern Clayton counties who participated in the Live Healthy Iowa 10 week wellness challenge in 2015.  Prizes will be awarded during the hospital’s annual Family Wellness Fair which will be held Wednesday, May 13 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the hospital.
Veterans Memorial Hospital supports and encourages the Live Healthy Iowa state-wide wellness program for all individuals in this area for wellness motivation and support. This web-based program offers all participants a personal tracking page that allows everyone to keep their own results right in front of them at all times. It also gives professional support including weekly motivational emails and unlimited access to recipes, workouts and other health information, all easily accessible on the Live Healthy Iowa website.
For the last three years, Allamakee County won the community participation prize for the number of residents enrolled in the program.
In order to claim a participation prize at the Veterans Memorial Hospital Family Wellness Fair, Live Healthy Iowa participants are asked to present their access card at the receptionist desk during the fair.  The access cards can be found by going to the Live Healthy Iowa website at www.livehealthyiowa.org and under the participant’s “my dashboard” tab, clicking on “create access card.”  The card can then be printed and brought in to redeem the prize.
