MHLbannersmallMy Healthy Lifestyle brings Riverside team members interesting and useful information to support better health and wellness

Welcome to your October My Healthy Lifestyle newsletter, the online voice of My Healthy Lifestyle, a program designed to bring good information on health and wellness to all Riverside team members. This issue of your newsletter has some valuable information on protecting yourself from fad diets, a healthy tip from a fellow employee on the need to stand up and be counted – or at least stand up, plus an update on how you can turn some healthy behaviors into big savings on your health plan premiums, and it all starts with scheduling an annual wellness exam. Make sure to read about why flu vaccinations for healthcare workers in particular hold the key to a healthier patient care environment and a healthier community. And if you needed another reason to stop smoking or help someone else quit … well here it is. 

Our hope as you receive your My Healthy Lifestyle newsletter each month is that you will not only read it but respond to it. To submit comments and ideas for future issues, please contact Daniel Ballin at And you can also follow Daniel on Twitter @danob71 for more health-related information.
