Genesis Offers Wellness Program To Community

Posted: Updated:

The people who work to make you well have had some success in making their own staff healthier and are now expanding that effort. Genesis Health System announced Friday it will launch a pilot program to combat metabolic syndrome in the community.

"This is a program that works to bring down the factors that contribute to metabolic syndrome and in doing so, will help extend lives for throughout our entire area," Said Jim Victor of the Genesis Philanthropy Board.

Genesis Philanthropy is offering the same health program it offers to its employees. The program provide health screening for metabolic syndrome -- which is a cluster of risk factors that could lead to costly medical conditions, like type II diabetes.

It will be given to a select number of people. Anyone interested in participating in the pilot program will need to register with Genesis.
