Planning a Health Awareness Day
A Health Awareness Day (or health fair) event for your employees and their family members is an opportunity for your organization or company to:
- Disseminate health information
- Raise awareness of targeted health issues
- Provide demonstrations of healthy practices
- Provide preventive health screenings and immunizations
- Inform about available well-being program resources
The appeal of a Health Awareness Day is that it can accomplish these goals efficiently for a large number of people in a single, fun event that they will be eager to attend. The event can serve as a health promotion and well-being program launch, with activities and objectives tied to your organization’s health risks and cost drivers.
The Health Awareness Day Planning Guide is provided to help you with planning, implementing and evaluating a Health Awareness Day. It includes an Exhibitor and a Participant Evaluation Form. Cigna does not directly sponsor Health Awareness Days, but we encourage employers to consider them for their health promotion and wellness programs, and we can provide support for such events. If you’d like our help in taking the next step by planning health promotion and well-being programming at your worksite, contact your account manager to learn more about health and well-being engagement support from Cigna.
