Diabetes Awareness event at South Campus

On April 7th, the South Campus Diabetes United team hosted Sara Aranda, Benefits Coordinator, and Mario Garcia, South Campus Pharmacy Tech Program Director, who gave presentations on the various benefits we have as employees.  Sara showed everyone the United Healthcare website and discussed the different health benefits we have as employees.  She covered emergency room, eye, feet and general doctor visits as well as our different dental plans. She also showed how to utilize the cell phone app, sign up for the United Healthcare wellness programs, how to get in touch with a real nurse 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and how to save lots of money for all kinds of activities.   Mario showed how to navigate the Caremark website by emphasizing how to do some comparison shopping for generic vs. name brand drugs.  He also showed how to run drug interaction reports.  Both presentations were outstanding and all those that attended were amazed with the information they learned at the Diabetes United Team meeting.  All employees are welcomed to attend our monthly meetings.  For further information please contact Judy Harrison at judy.harrison@sjcd.edu.
