Sheena Chatham County

After dealing with increased weight, lethargy, and lack of self-confidence, I decided it was time to make an appointment at the Chatham County Employee Health Center.

Milus Averitt Express

I weighed 340 pounds and struggled with several health issues, including depression, low testosterone, high blood pressure, high red blood count, sleep apnea, sciatica, and chronic pain. At times, my body hurt so badly I was unable to move.

Maurice Johnson Brothers

When I got sick with a bad cough, I decided to visit the Marathon Health & Wellness Center. During my visit, Kari Doohen, MA, and Chris-Ann Lauria, NP, encouraged me to schedule a free biometric screening, Comprehensive Health Review, and annual physical. I want to live to be 100 years old like my auntie, so I took their advice.

Matthew Mr. Cooper

Plagued by high blood pressure and limited mobility caused by obesity, my mental health was in a downward spiral. I couldn’t play catch or throw the football around with my two teenage sons for any extended period of time.

Jill Sargento Foods Inc.

I wasn’t happy with the way I looked or felt. I was tired, got winded climbing steps, and my clothes didn’t fit properly. After completing the necessary question-naires and a biometric screening, I downloaded my MyHealth Report from the Marathon eHealth Portal.

Ixel Aflac

I am a 41-year-old mother of two children, and my life changed for the better when I had a routine exam with Wendy Wall, FNP, at the Aflac Care Center. I was always tired, had painful joints, and weighed 276 pounds.

Frederick Bay District Schools

After the destruction of my home and the loss of both of my parents following Hurricane Michael, my life was in shambles and my stress through the roof. My wife and I were living in a Federal Emergency Management Agency camper with no oven.

Dan City of Loveland, CO

After reviewing my annual lab results, it became clear that my health would continue to decline if I didn’t make changes. I struggled with alcohol consumption and my weight, as well as cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure levels.

Mando City of Fort Collins

My journey started two years ago. I was 50 years old, weighed 185 pounds, drank heavily, and did not take care of myself. I took four medications every day for blood pressure, heartburn, and asthma, which cost me about $500 a year (plus all the money I spent on alcohol).

Karen State of Kansas

Twenty years ago, I tore ligaments in my knee as the result of a workplace injury and needed three surgeries to be able to walk again. For years, extreme pain prevented me from walking prolonged distances. I gained weight, and had high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
