“Take a Moment at Your Desk” session facilitated by Suzanne Scholz of Mindful Sou Yoga. The session demonstrated movements that could be easily done at workstations throughout the day to refresh and restore the mind and body.

  Diabetes Foundation of St. Maarten also gave high blood pressure and glucose checks to staffers. Lectures were held by nutritionist Swinda Richardson on “Healthy Eating” and by Dr. Joanne Siebel on “The Importance of Mental Health”.

  Personal Health Trackers were shared to help employees maintain their well-being and healthy habits by keeping track of their cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, weight and body mass index (BMI) numbers.
