Protect the Skin Your In!

Tuesday, June 16, 2019              10:00am-10:30am              https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/633752305075453955

 

It is easy to feel how hot it is out there. Chances are you may be getting more exposure to ultraviolet light than you think.  Skin damage from the sun doesn’t occur just when you are on the beach, poolside ornew working outside.  Many do not protect their skin in day to day situations and even when there will be known exposure. It doesn’t matter how little or more melanin we have, we should be protecting our skin, even when it is cloudy.  Join us for this webinar to learn more about avoiding damaging rays and tips for a burn-free summer.

Back Tips for People Who Sit
Tuesday, June 23, 2019    10:00pm-10:30pm 

https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3515242427988045827

You may not know it, but 40 hours of sitting can put more strain on your back than 40 hours of standing—or even lifting—making you one of the unsung heroes or heroines of the workplace.  But you’re also a prime target for the Monday-to-Friday Syndrome:  backache and fatigue from slouching over your desk all week. Since you sit most of the day, it makes sense to learn simple back care tips to help prevent back strain and injury and help you feel healthy on the job.
