There will be educational materials, a healthy cooking demonstration, and screenings available. Several vendors will bring door prizes to give away.

    We are partnering with the University of Mississippi Medical Center to offer FREE health screenings. The screenings are sponsored by the UMMC School of Nursing, UMMC School of Ophthalmology and UMMC School of Pharmacy. The UMMC screenings are available to employees only by appointment. Other screenings are available from other vendors and do not require an appointment. Please see the attached flyer for more information.

Please note, you may choose to participate in some of the screenings or all of the screenings. To make your appointment click here.

C3 Wellness Center

    As you may know, the Mississippi Community College Foundation (MCCF) received a $300,700 grant from the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation for its "Community Challenge for Change" (C3) initiative. The grant will allow the Mississippi Community College Board (MCCB) and C3 partners to develop and deliver a comprehensive wellness program to more than 500 employees who work within the Education Research Complex in Jackson.
    As part of this initiative, MCCF and MCCB designed and built a wellness center located in the JSU Universities Center (Suite 7-1). (See the pictures attached.) The C3 Wellness Center is available to all IHL employees at no cost. Attached are 2 waivers that must be completed by each participant and submitted to Shana Hansen in room 616. After both waivers are received, the participant will be assigned a code that will allow them to access the center during the following hours:
  • 7:00am – 7:00pm Monday – Thurs
  • 7:00am – 5:00pm Friday
  • Closed weekends
  • NOTE: When the JSU building is closed the Wellness Center will be closed.
  • Holiday hours will be provided at a later date.
  • We invite you to "Like" the C3 Wellness page on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
