St. John’s Employee ‘Stars’ Are Taking Charge of Their Health
Three St. John’s staff members have recently stepped up to share their stories in an effort to promote better wellness. Yolanda Colon, Linda McCoy, and Omar Fleming will be featured on posters and other promotional materials in support of the High Blood Pressure Collaborative’s My Reminder Project. The posters use each individual’s plan for taking their medication as an example for others challenged with remembering to take their prescriptions on a consistent basis.
These customized posters will appear not only throughout St. John’s but in workplaces and other public areas across the Rochester area. The My Reminder campaign started in January with billboards, transit advertising, radio ads, and posters in doctor’s offices, worksites, pharmacies, and community settings. The High Blood Pressure Collaborative is a health initiative spearheaded by the region’s largest employers, hospitals, and insurance companies and managed through a partnership between Common Ground Health (formerly Finger Lakes Health Systems Agency) and the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce.
St. John’s is proud to have these three employees participate in such an important community-wide initiative. We believe that programs like these reinforce our commitment to offering support and guidance to help our valued employees maintain a healthy lifestyle.
