Personal Wellness Stories - Julia C.

As a sonographer in Diagnostic Imaging, I am very aware of the issue of repetitive injury. As part of my role on the "Live Well. Work Well.” team, I have become very active in preventing injury in my department, as well as for all new employees. To help prevent injuries, I developed a stretch program for my department that is now available to all staff on the intranet site.

In order to encourage new staff to care for themselves through good ergonomic practices, I welcome new employees at orientation and talk about the importance of stretching during the workday.

In 2016, I initiated a 5k-a-month program for our organization, encouraging all employees to walk or run a 5k with me each month of the calendar year. This gives staff opportunities to be active, have fun, and meet others who work in our organization. I plan to continue this program in the future in hopes of inspiring even more employees to be healthy and well.
