Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
Every year, American Traveler corporate staff diligently reminds healthcare professionals about the benefits of an annual flu vaccine. This is why, in solidarity with affiliated healthcare professionals’ commitment to good health, American Traveler sponsored its first ever on-site flu shot clinic at the corporate headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida on October 21st, 2013. The flu shots were incredibly convenient and offered free of charge.
A CVS team administered the shots; from start to finish, the process was a heartening show of teamwork and enthusiasm, and supports a fundamental goal set by the CDC and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: getting more people vaccinated! Each year, approximately 36,000 people die and 226,000 are hospitalized due to the flu. These are preventable deaths. Providing an annual influenza vaccination to corporate employees demonstrates a commitment to promoting the health of the staff and raising the community’s overall participation in the effort of flu prevention.
Resources like the Vaccine Information Statement further that goal, by offering a complete guide on how to stay healthy this flu season. If greater numbers strive for a culture of healing, more healthcare workers outside the nursing sector may one day follow the Registered Nurses’ outstanding example of 80% receiving flu shots. This is one of many ways to live a healthier lifestyle, and encourages others to do the same. It’s a culture of healing. American Traveler is proud to help perpetuate this, via events like its on-site flu shot clinic that will be offered again in September 2014. Convenient vaccinations are part of a preemptive tool kit in the spirit of maintaining good health; and that is the goal behind creating a website that speaks to health conscious medical professionals.
American Traveler Promotes Healthy Lifestyles by Sharing Recipes, Nutrition and Fitness Tips
Many in the healthcare industry believe that a big part of disease prevention is in the preparing of nutritious, daily meals that help the immune system remain strong. When coupled with regular exercise, nutrition may be the best recipe of all for healthy minds and bodies. In the spirit of this, American Traveler launched, in early 2013, the website Healthy Careers, which has been hosting a popular healthy recipe contest. The goal of the contest is to motivate healthcare professionals everywhere, along with members of the American Traveler team, to manage and prevent illness by promoting healthy careers and lifestyles. Judging by the entries received by health-oriented fans of the site, Healthy Careers are at work for many, connecting both corporate and R.N. Travelers with healthy lifestyles initiatives that can’t lose!
