Presentations will be made by the American Heart Association and Methodist Healthcare on topics from our 2022 survey in which members expressed interest. Human Resources will provide healthy snacks, fruit and water. A drawing will be held for a $100 VISA gift card.
The American Heart Association’s presentation will be on heart healthy living from a holistic approach, incorporating healthy habits and ending with a demonstration of hands-only CPR, including an opportunity for attendees to practice on mannequins.
Methodist Healthcare’s presentation will focus on heart disease prevention from a dietary perspective, including the impact of unhealthy eating and its risk factors, and recommended eating guidelines and putting them into practice. Methodist Healthcare System staff will also be providing complimentary blood pressure readings.

Humana Dental ACH Payments
If you have electronic payments (i.e. ACH) set up with Humana for dental insurance and the March premium payment has/was not drafted, you may receive a phone call from Humana asking you to make/authorize a one-time payment for the month of March, as there were system issues that caused some electronic payments to be canceled. This does not impact everyone and if you do not receive a phone call or email, your electronic payment will draft as scheduled.
