Kelsey-Seybold Clinic Waste Management Unveil Free Wellness Station for Downtown Houston Employees
Take five to stay alive.
Houston (July 18, 2007) – In just five minutes – confidentially and at no charge -- you can know your numbers – the numbers that help keep you healthy. You may be surprised to know that 29 million American men suffer from high blood pressure, while 50 million men have high cholesterol and eight million others have diabetes. Many are unaware of a problem because they often don't observe any symptoms and may not make preventive health a priority.
Waste Management, Inc., Kelsey-Seybold Clinic and the Kelsey Research Foundation are working together to promote health awareness and help downtown Houston's workforce get quick, free health updates in just five minutes. The first of several "Know Your Numbers" Wellness Stations is now open in the downtown tunnel system at 1001 Fannin. These stations provide a FREE, convenient way to get important health numbers, including blood pressure and body mass index (BMI). Information is stored safely and securely online for convenient access and confidential tracking. In the months ahead, additional wellness stations will be introduced throughout the tunnel system.
Make your health a priority today. Stop by the Wellness Station in the tunnel under First City Tower and take five to know your numbers! Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, with its Houston Center Clinic conveniently located in the heart of downtown and 17 other locations where you live, work and play, wants you to know your numbers and get on the road to a healthier lifestyle.
