During 2015, the Lake Cumberland District Health Department and Monticello Banking Company partnered to offer a wellness promotion. An opportunity to complete a Health Risk Assessment (HRA) developed by the health department and located on their website at https://www.lcdhd.org was offered. At the end of the survey, participants were provided the chance to enter $1,000 & $500.00 prize drawings sponsored by the Monticello Banking Company. Local residents Jane Dudgen from Campbellsville, and Tina Linsey from Monticello filled out their profiles, entered the contest and won.
The HRA is a free health informational tool that provides a snapshot of one’s overall health status and offers recommendations to improve one’s health. The HRA also generates a report that can be taken to a healthcare provider which details needed health screenings, vaccinations, and risk factors identified during the assessment. Shawn Crabtree, Health Department Director, states, “Kentucky ranks poorly in almost all health areas. It is important for our citizens to learn about their health status and to understand practical things that can be done to improve their general health.”
The Lake Cumberland District Health Department and the Monticello Banking Company want to thank everyone who participated. Please watch for our 2016 wellness promotion on our website at Health Risk Assessment for your chance to win while learning about your health. Everyone is encourage to participate.
