Health Week observed at La Cabana Beach and Racquet Club

Health Week is observed at La Cabana Beach & Racquet Club twice a year in the Spring and in the Fall. The resort’s Green, Health & Safety Committee puts together the Health Week program in conjunction with other departments, encouraging resort employees to get tested, also offering a program of interesting lectures relating to the subject.

While management provides all testing materials and equipment the resort’s own certified EMT staff performs blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol checks.

As a pre-requisite all associates were asked to adhere to the pre-test two hour “no-food-no-drink” rule, and the majority of associates made good use of the opportunity, lining up early for their turn.

The results of each associate were recorded and compared to previous readings, so that each associate was informed of his health indicators and made aware of all danger signs.

The Green, Health & Safety Committee is grateful to the EMT Team for their wonderful cooperation. Medical Coordinator Lindoro Abraham Vera reported most results were within norm, as the resort focused this year on living a healthier life-style, and the numbers certainly reflect this trend.

Rosanne Roy, Associate Relations Manager, La Cabana Beach & Racquet Club, explains that the EMTs doing the glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol tests with Abraham Vera, are Clara Acevedo, Igmar Franken and Pierre Kock, who volunteer their time, and are important contributors to resort employee well-being and morale.

The team offered to give the media photographer a check up, at the end of which they gave her a clean bill of health.
