I just checked out the Pound for Pound website. General Mills, Subway and other corporate partners have taken the lead in helping out the hungry with the Pound for Pound program. For every pound you lose, they have agreed to donate 14 cents to go to Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic charitable hunger-relief organization, and local food agencies like MANNA FoodBank. Lighten Up 4 Life , the community weight loss program sponsored by Pardee Hospital, is proud to be a part of this Pound for Pound challenge. Go to the Lighten Up 4 Life site to find out more about this program, and how you can help feed the hungry while losing weight. -CJP
Recently Pardee Hospital and Henderson County’s first community-oriented weight-loss program, Lighten Up 4 Life (LU4L), awarded Team Material Girls for achieving their weight loss goals. Team Material Girls won the Pardee LU4L first trimester with a 6.5% (50.5 lbs) total weight loss. Team Material Girls is comprised of Sandy Camp, Pam Guy, Shelby Gaillard and Tabitha Calloway. I know each of the members of this team. They all work in the hospital's Materials Management Dept. I took their photo right after they were each presented with a $150 VISA check card. I am on a LU4L team as well, but we didn't do as good as expected. However, it was the holidays and we will trudge on! We hope to do better the next LU4L trimester which kicks off this week.

If you haven't seen this video yet, it is some great work done by Providence St. Vincent Medical Center employees in Portland, Oregon. They put together this video to generate breast cancer awareness throughout their hospital system.
