Veterans Memorial Hospital has announced they will again be awarding prizes to all those in Allamakee and northern Clayton counties that participated in the Live Healthy Iowa 10 week wellness challenge in 2018. That challenge has recently come to an end for this year. Prizes for all participants will be awarded during the hospital’s annual Family Wellness Fair which will be held on Wednesday, May 9, 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.
In order to claim your 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. Personalized participant access cards can be found by going to the Live Healthy Iowa website at www.livehealthyiowa.org and under the participant’s profile picture on their dashboard, clicking on the 2018 box at the bottom left of the profile section. The card can then be printed and brought in to redeem the prizes.

Veterans Memorial Hospital will sponsor a Babysitting Seminar on Saturday, April 7, from 8:30 - Noon. The class will be held in the Large Conference Room located on the lower level of Veterans Memorial Hospital.
Intended participants are individuals 10 years of age and older who are responsible for their own care after school until their parents come home from work, and individuals who care for other children in or outside of their own home.
