Making Headlines For Health & Nutrition

Lakeland Chamber Forum For Business

The Well-Life system is the realization that healthy, happy people create a better culture and inviting environment at the office. When focusing on health, awareness tends to shift from reactive healthcare to prevention. To prevent health problems, you need to move beyond dealing illness when problems begin to occur. Exercise and medication only go so far. The next step is nutrition. The Lakeland Chamber's Monthly Forum For Business has caught wind of this realization. (For the entire article click here)

The Forum For Business covered a story on our most recent endeavor: Partnering with RN/Certified Personal Trainer/Well Coach/Therapeutic Chef, Whitney Cabrera (wow that's a lot of titles, huh?). Why take this plunge? Whitney used to see many return visitors during her days in the ER and Critical Care Unit. She realized that many of the illnesses she saw could have been prevented or managed with proper nutrition. 28 years later, she's now an advocate for nutrition, offering workshops/classes on how to cook tasty & healthy food, plan meals, and raise awareness on nutrition and illness prevention/management. "Advocate" may be an understand statement. Dare we say "evangelist?"

With Whitney's knowledge, we're now able to offer a better service through the Well-Life System. We've added value to everything an employer could offer their employees. The system is structured in way that allows wellness to be spoken into lives of its participants. Whether it's talking to a health coach, or talking to Whitney, a participant is getting everything they need to live a happier, healthier life.

This partnership with Whitney was inevitable. She just gets it:

"It's not about me. It's an entire system of prevention and proactive measures, and I get to be a part of that." - Whitney Cabrera, RN
