      Spring Into Health

      Swedish Covenant Health is leading a free community wellness initiative throughout May to promote healthy lifestyles followed by a Summer Social on June 2nd to celebrate with an array of fun, healthy activities for everyone.

      Throughout May, Swedish Covenant Health will host a variety of wellness events at the hospital and partner with local community organizations with the goal of encouraging community members to take small steps toward developing healthy lifestyle habits. Then on June 2, SCH will host a free Summer Social event on the hospital’s campus, featuring interactive engagements and demonstrations for fitness, nutrition, mind/body and overall wellness.

      “We heard from our community that becoming healthier was important, so we wanted to provide everyone with a wide variety of healthy activities to do throughout May,” said Anthony Guaccio, President and CEO of Swedish Covenant Health, which previously hosted CPR training and bike safety focused events. “We are constantly working to develop programs that help make our community safer and healthier, and this represents an exciting opportunity to improve the health of everyone in the community.”

      Spring Into Health will include an array of activities for everyone looking to improve their health. “This initiative will focus on wellness and encourage our community to explore activities tied to fitness, nutrition, mind/body or preventive care,” said Jenise Celestin, Director of Community Relations for the hospital, which offers more than 200 wellness programs annually. “In partnership with our local community organizations, we will promote an array of wellness events during May throughout the neighborhood.”

      • Neighborhood walking tours
