We are basking in the peak of summer and enjoying all of the warm-weather activities of the season. But, you may have discovered that the shorts you wore last year don’t fit as well as they did in summers past. Perhaps you are sitting more at your job and are not getting in the physical activity needed to keep you trim. If we aren’t mindful of our habits, those unwanted pounds can creep up on us faster than we realize. Regardless of your situation or current fitness level, there’s no better time than now to transition into a healthy lifestyle and ultimately a healthier you. In addition to possibly extending the length of your life, the benefits of healthy eating habits and exercise are astronomical.
Southeastern Med is here to help you reach your positive lifestyle goals and the Group Lifestyle Balance (GLB) Program ™ is one of the comprehensive programs made available to you. GLB provides education to help you reach a healthy balance through diet and exercise. It is designed for non-diabetic, overweight individuals age 18 and older with risk factors for type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The program includes 22 sessions, weight monitoring, healthy eating and fitness tips, and support to stay motivated.
“The accountability is so helpful to me!” stated Katie Schafer, of Caldwell. “I have noticed a change in my overall energy since joining Group Lifestyle Balance and making the commitment to be healthier. The group support is great and we always encourage each other,” explained Katie. Katie has lost over 25 pounds since joining GLB in January and is pleased with her results. Faye Fulper is completing her second year of the program and returned because of the benefits she received through group support and accountability. Faye has shed over 60 pounds since joining GLB in 2013 and appreciates all the tips and advice she has gained through this experience.
Marsha Stroud, of Cambridge, has been impressed with the GLB program. “Overall, it has been good because this doesn’t promote fad dieting. I know I have support for the entire year through the program. I’m thinking of continuing (the program) next year because of how beneficial it has been for me,” noted Marsha. Jennifer Reed, of Cambridge, exclaimed, “The program has been wonderful! I’ve tried for a long time to lose weight and have been unsuccessful. Since enrolling in the class, I have lost 70 pounds. I look at food and exercise completely differently now and am so glad to have had this experience. My life is completely different now and I highly recommend the program to anyone. ”
The goal of GLB is to help you reduce your body weight by 7% and encourage you to exercise 150 minutes per week. In order to be a part of this exciting program, you must meet at least one of the following requirements: high blood pressure, pre-diabetes or history of gestational diabetes, high cholesterol or triglycerides, or overweight (body mass index at or above 25). In order to keep off excess weight in the long term, it is important that you make manageable changes that you will be able to continue for the rest of your life. When you lose weight quickly, you may gain it back overtime and potentially gain more than you originally lost. Southeastern Med’s staff will work with you to make gradual changes that will last a lifetime.
The next GLB session starts on Tuesday, September 2nd, from 5-6pm at Southeastern Med’s Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation facility. Registration begins on August 11th.
For more information about this phenomenal program or to register for the upcoming GLB session, please contact Debbie Stillion, Wellness Specialist at Southeastern Med, at 740-439-2946.
Congratulations to Southeastern Med's team member, Nacy Neff!
Nacy is our Health Care Worker of the year and a the Ohio Hosptial Association's Albert E. Dyckes award finalist. Check out the Ohio Hospital Association's video of the recognition awards ceremony and see Nacy accepting her award.
We're so proud to have you on our team, Nacy!
Southeastern Med ranked among the top 20% of all hospitals in the state of Ohio during a recent Ohio Hospital Association (OHA) state-wide hospital safety campaign.
The campaign measured safety practices at hospitals across the state of Ohio, and the results will be used to set new benchmarks for hospital safety compliance in the future.
OHA recognized Southeastern Med as a Top Twenty Percent Overall Hospital at their annual awards banquet held on June 10th this year.
Southeastern Med was also recognized at the banquet as golf partner by Donate Life Ohio and the Ohio Department of Health’s Second Trust fund, which honors hospitals that create awareness about organ donation and increase the number of registered organ donors in their communities.
Southeastern Med’s Nancy Neff was one of only four finalists for the Albert E. Dyckes Healthcare Worker of the Year award.
This prestigious award, given by the Ohio Health Association (OHA), recognizes one outstanding heath care worker who embodies the meaning of service through healthcare, and whose leadership and values reflect the ideals of Ohio’s healthcare facilities. Each Ohio hospital is invited to nominate one healthcare worker within their organization, and OHA honored this year’s candidates – 74 in total – at an awards banquet held on Tuesday, June 10th.
Nancy wasn’t ultimately selected to receive the award, but she’s still #1 in our hearts. We nominated Nancy for her tireless commitment to and pursuit of the best possible outcomes for her patients here at Southeastern Med. A Cambridge, Ohio native, Nancy has worked at Southeastern Med for more than 30 years, starting as a midnight shift nurse’s aide, later serving a social worker, and ultimately forming our Quality Care Management department.
Most recently, Nancy has developed a system to track survivorship care plans, even though such plans aren’t required to be in place until 2015.
Nancy, we’re honored to have you as part of our incredible team.
