Kelsey-Seybold Clinic Waste Management Team Up for Health
Wellness Stations Offer Free, Convenient Health Screening in Tunnels
Houston (August 7, 2007) –Making the cut: Waste Management leadership, along with staff from Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, Kelsey Research Foundation and the Houston major league baseball team celebrate and officially open the new "Know Your Numbers" Wellness Station in the downtown tunnel system. In just five minutes—confidentially and at no charge—downtown workers can get blood pressure, body mass index (BMI) and other tests that reveal important numbers for staying healthy. Information is stored safely and securely online for convenient access and confidential tracking. Users may then log on to Life Clinic to print out their personal reports and share them with their physicians.
