Participants of Tribal Wellvation celebrated their first year of the program on the night of Wednesday, October 9th. The End of Year Celebration took place at the Carter Casino Hotel and was sponsored by Community Health. Participants and a guest of their choosing were invited to the celebration which included an award ceremony, dinner, and a prize raffle. Norman Tribett was asked to say the prayer. Participants who earned silver and gold status received their rewards. Those who earned gold status were also awarded with a special gift (pictured). These gifts of cedar, sage, and a beautifully crafted lanyard were put together by Nicki Tomlin. Community Health staff encouraged participants to share feedback for what they would like to see in Tribal Wellvation’s second year and many suggestions and ideas were shared.
The Tribal Wellvation program promotes healthy behaviors and is available to FCP tribal members who are 18 and older. The program rewards participants for completing a biometric screening, health assessment, and other annual appointments such as physicals and dental checkups. Participants can also earn points by attending community events such as the Swine, Dine and Dash and the upcoming Breast Cancer Awareness event on October 29th. Incentives for being active in the program include $50- $150 in Visa gift cards and the chance to win a Fitbit through quarterly drawings. Community Health thanks all Tribal Wellvation participants for a wonderful first year and is looking forward to offering new and exciting opportunities in the future. Year two of Tribal Wellvation is starting off strong with Kick-Off events being offered in November and December.
