Week 2 of the STRONG Knowledge Trivia Challenge starts TODAY!
This three-week challenge tests your wellness knowledge. Each week there is an internet “scavenger hunt” with clues to answer wellness related questions. The weekly trivia questions are posted on the HarbinSTRONG portal midday on Wednesday. Complete the weekly quiz correctly to earn 7 points. Complete all three quizzes to collect bonus points for a total of 26 points.
Quizzes are only available for one week. You can jump in to participate at any time during the challenge but you cannot take the quiz from previous weeks.
There’s arguably no better time of year to enjoy a brisk morning walk than fall, and as the weather is (finally) starting to cool down, the Rome community is invited to partake in a heart-healthy walk alongside the Etowah River on Kingfisher Trail.
The last Walk with a Doc of the year is fast approaching and Harbin Clinic Pediatrician Dr. Melissa Davis will lead the group for the final lap on Saturday, October 19 at Bridgepoint Plaza, just off Second Avenue in Rome, at 9 a.m. Employee participants earn 10 HarbinSTRONG points.
“My team and I are incredibly excited about the opportunity to lead this upcoming health walk to celebrate being outdoors in the beautiful fall weather in the heart of downtown Rome,” says Dr. Davis. “October is a favorite time of mine with many community events and outdoor festivities. I encourage our youngest patients to start a lifetime of being outdoors for an hour a day, a commitment that changes their lives for the better. Let’s get started at this next Walk with a Doc.”
Dr. Davis will speak to the group about the health benefits of an active lifestyle as well as lead a discussion on tips to keep the community healthy during flu season.
Walkers of all ages are invited to participate and should wear light clothing and comfortable shoes. Registration is not required, and the walking path is stroller-friendly.
Hike 2 Health is this Saturday! Join by Brian Price to walk the Heritage Trail along the river in Rome. Meet behind the Rome Braves Stadium at 9 a.m.
Family and friends are welcome to participate. Friendly, well behaved dogs on a leash are also welcome.
If you have concerns about the weather, please contact Brian at (706) 238-2225.
