Help yourself and your office be healthy!

  • Healthy Departments: Use the healthy department toolkit for ways to help yourself and your department stay healthy in 2018. And, check out our latest bulletin board posts; you could even use these to create a bulletin board in your department (we update our posts every month)!
  • Take Energy Breaks: Adding more movement in your day and staying energized is important so don't forget to take an energy break a few times each day! Energy breaks are short 2-5 minute breaks, such as a stretch, a stair climb, a mindful minute or a quick walk. They can help you replenish your energy, feel less stressed and fuel productivity.

  • Take Control of your Health: Many chronic health conditions are preventable and are brought on by unhealthy lifestyle choices. That's why preventive care is so crucial to your health. Being proactive about your health and getting necessary preventive screenings done at the appropriate time can give you the insight you need to make informed decisions. Know your numbers like your blood pressure, weight, cholesterol and glucose, and how they affect your health. Talk to your physician about what preventive screenings you may be due for based on your age, gender, personal health history and family health history. Screenings may be associated with breast health, colon health, cervical health, and prostate health. Dartmouth's medical plan offers coverage for many of these services at no additional cost when you go to a health care professional in the Cigna network. It's always a good idea to call Cigna at the toll-free number on the back of your ID card to confirm coverage prior to scheduling any services.
