I eat A LOT. Years ago, when purchasing a new lunch box I had to ask the clerk to pretend I was a 6ʹ tall construction worker and stop suggesting dainty lunchboxes. During the work day, my very predictable breakfasts (yes, plural!), lunch, and snacks are all very healthy and consisted largely of fruits and vegetables. After hours and weekends, though? That’s when the gloves come off.
Back in May of 2019, you may have been one of the 10,000 participants who laced up their sneakers to run, jog, or walk in the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge.

As we open the application process for the 2020 CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge Charities of Choice, we wanted to let you know how your generosity helped both the Damien Center and Family Promise expand and enhance their programming.

During the fall and winter, the days can seem painfully short in this part of the country. It’s easy to snuggle up on the couch, dive into a homemade tin of cookies and some hot chocolate around the holidays, and bundle up for the long, cold weeks of winter that follow. As the season stretches on, that inactivity and those bad habits can lead to weight gain (despite your best efforts to eat healthy), decreased fitness, and the dreaded feeling of cabin fever.
I’m a retired plumber from Coxsackie, NY with a laundry list of health conditions, not the least of which is blindness. A few years ago after suffering a stroke, I signed up for health insurance coverage through CDPHP. Not long after enrolling, I got a call from a CDPHP nurse who said I was overdue for a colonoscopy.
Let me repeat that, my health insurer called to say I was overdue for a cancer screening, and even offered to help me schedule an appointment. I was pleasantly surprised by the gesture and took her up on the offer.
