Greetings from Melton Wellness!

As we roll into fall weather, I would like each of you who completed your iCare Personal Health Assessment (PHA) to review your results. If you have questions or concerns, you can schedule a PHA review with the CareATC staff or with your personal physician. One service that CareATC began due to the COVID outbreak was virtual visits. The great news is that the virtual visit option will continue well after COVID. Simply call CareATC at 800-993-8244 to schedule your virtual visit. You will receive a Zoom invite, and you will visit with a CareATC physician via video. This is a great service!

Another important screening is coming back to Melton – onsite mobile mammography. This year we will host the OU Breast Center’s mobile mammography unit on November 3rd and November 4th. That’s right, 2 days! Mammograms are strongly recommended annually for women age 40 and up (sometimes younger if you have a family history or other medical issues). You may schedule your onsite visit by calling 800-422-4626 extension #6. Please bring your photo ID, photocopy of your benefits card, and your physician’s name, address, and phone number to your mammogram appointment.

Lastly, our onsite gym in Tulsa is OPEN 24/7. Stop by and get a workout and/or get your body composition tested on our InBody machine. Oh, and don’t forget to join our Facebook Group Melton Torqued. Search “Melton Torqued” on Facebook and get workouts, recipes, and notices on upcoming wellness events.

Stay healthy & be safe!

Halloween Treats

It’s Halloween night. The goblins have been fed, the ghouls have been tricked and/or treated, and you’re feeling more like a good witch than a bad one. Halloween may be for kids, but the calorie consequences are for you and me if you are like me and “borrow” some of your kids Halloween stash! Consider these numbers: Three miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups fill your belly with more sugar than a glazed doughnut; half a pack of Skittles has more sugar than a scoop of Haagen-Dazs Cookies and Cream Ice Cream; nine Twizzlers carry as many calories as a Wendy’s Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe. Now…that’s SCARY! Here are a couple of healthy and fun recipe ideas for adults and kiddos!

2020 Virtual Heart Walk

Our 2020 Heart Walk looked a little different this year! This year’s Heart Walk was a virtual event where participants could walk their three miles whenever and wherever. By participating in the Heart Walk, they joined a million Heart Walk Heroes from across the nation, raising funds for lifesaving science. Science that can teach us all how to live longer and be healthy for good. Special thanks goes to all of our employees and families for participating in the 2020 Virtual Tulsa Heart Walk. Check out some of the fun below!
