Baptist Trinity team member wins $8,000 in cash and prizes from HumanaVitality

Lori Smith, a senior recruiter and HumanaVitality champion for Baptist Trinity, received $8,200 in cash, gift cards and Apple products for winning HumanaVitality’s Dream Technology essay contest.

What made you want to start using HumanaVitality?

What made you want to start using HumanaVitality?

I was asked by my CEO, Nancy Averwater, to serve as our HumanaVitality Champ for all our Home Care entities. I wanted to learn as much as I could about the program so I could be a resource to our employees.

What do you like about it?

What do you like about it?

I like that it not only rewards a healthy lifestyle, but it provides educational tools to help you achieve your goals. I have learned so much about nutrition and exercise, and my family and I have made significant changes to our lifestyle. With the points I earned, I was able to purchase a FitBit from the Vitality Mall. I like to think of my FitBit as my accountability partner. Just wearing the band is a reminder for me to take the stairs instead of the elevator or to park in a spot not so close to the door when I am out running errands. My husband also has a FitBit courtesy of the Vitality Mall. Other purchases have been Amazon and Macy’s gift cards.

Have you noticed any results (weight lost, improved vitals, etc.) since you started using HumanaVitality?

Have you noticed any results (weight lost, improved vitals, etc.) since you started using HumanaVitality?

Absolutely! The second step in the process is completing a Vitality Check (body mass index, blood pressure, glucose, and cholesterol screenings). My results were really good in some areas and not so good in a few others. HumanaVitality helped me to set goals in the areas that were not within a healthy range. Today, I have lost 15 pounds (and counting), and I have lowered my blood pressure.

Why should other team members use HumanaVitality?

Why should other team members use HumanaVitality?

We all have areas of personal wellness that need improvement. Not only does HumanaVitality help you achieve your personal goals, it rewards you for being healthy! Anyone can participate— it doesn’t matter if you run marathons or if you want to start your journey to better health. Everyone can find ways to succeed.
