The Fred Beans Healthy Living Committee sponsored a visit by the Independence Blue Cross Wellness Van to three locations around the company’s Doylestown dealerships and subsidiaries on April 8. All employees were invited to sign up and step aboard for free blood pressure and “dermascan” screenings for sun damage. If indicated, they were provided with counseling about high blood pressure options, sunscreen use and the benefits of visits to a dermatologist.
Linda Bell, director of human resources and a member of the Healthy Living Committee, said, “We’re very pleased that 89 employees took part in the health screenings.”
The Healthy Living Committee, established in 2003, sponsors smoking-cessation and nutrition classes, weight-loss and exercise programs and other events and activities that promote a healthier work community.
