The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 be tested for HIV at least once as part of their routine health care. Tomorrow is national HIV and AIDS Testing Day to build awareness about the importance of being assessed.
Each year in the days leading up to Father’s Day, we celebrate Men’s Health as a country. June is national Men’s Health Month. The goal of Men’s Health Month is to raise awareness on how to prevent health problems among men. It is the perfect time to encourage senior men to obtain regular medical checkups, focus on illness prevention and embrace self-care activities such as regular exercise and even trying new past times such as yoga or swimming. At Colorado Visiting Nurse Association, we support our community in encouraging health senior living and applauding men for taking charge of their health and fitness, as they go through life.
My first day at Colorado Visiting Nurse Association
By Christopher Lee, President & CEO
And so begins an exciting new phase in my career…my new role as President and CEO for Colorado VNA. I have been blessed with many exciting opportunities in my career and this one ranks as the most exciting. I am just finishing up my position as General Manager for SCL Home Health Solutions (SCLHHS), which is SCL/Exempla’s home health company. It has been a challenging position, but one that has provided a significant perspective on the complexities of running a mission-based home health organization. I have also learned a lot about the importance and power of partnering with hospitals and payers in order to provide integrated care across the continuum. As I am sure many of you know, health systems and payers have not always thought of non-facility-based care as an important part of the care continuum! Things have changed!
Interested in working for VNA?
We are always looking for top notch care givers to support our mission of providing the best at home care in the industry.
