Shortly after the New Year, employees at Carthage Area Hospital had an opportunity to participate in a competitive, 12-week nutritional program called “Commit to be fit.” What was previously known as the “Weigh of Life,” program, “Commit to be fit,” required weekly weigh-ins and offered weekly nutritional classes. Participants who lost the most in total inches and percent weight loss were awarded a cash prize. A total of 403.5 lbs. were lost amongst participants.
For those without health insurance, there will be an opportunity to enroll at Carthage Area Hospital. United Healthcare will be at the hospital on Tuesdays, from 9am-1pm and Fidelis will be set up on Thursdays from 9am-1pm. Enrollment is open to the public.
