Fall Happenings!

Now that volleyball season has come to an end, I am hoping to get back into a more regular blogging routine again. For now, I wanted to give you an update of some of the things Creation Health as been apart of in Greene County this fall.

In August, I had the privilege of speaking to the Christian Women's Club @ Cumberland Presbyterian Church about Creation Health. I simply gave them an overview of the program and what the letters in the acronym CREATION stand for, C - Choice, R - Rest, E - Environment, A - Activity, T - Trust, I - Interpersonal Relationships, O - Outlook and N - Nutrition, as well as how each impacts our overall health and well-being.

In September, we were apart of several events. In fact, on two different occasions in September, we had the opportunity to present an overview of the Creation Health program and pass out materials to the youth and adults involved in the Greene County Partnership Leadership program, as we do each year. I also had the opportunity to share with the Diabetes Support Group about A - Activity, how it affects our health and well-being, and how it specifically relates to diabetes. At the end of the month, we hosted our 3rd retreat for hospital leaders, to give them an update on Creation Health happenings in Greene County since our last retreat, as well as upcoming plans. Here are a few pictures...

At the end of October, we wrapped up another successful 8-weeks of seminars for the City of Greeneville employees. So far we have had 55+ participate, including police officers, fire fighters, town hall, parks & rec and public works!

And these first few days of November have been spent taking inventory, so that we can order new materials for all of the exciting things we have planned for the end of 2015 and 2016. Thanks for being apart of our journey to a healthier community!
