RC: Hi Dr. Serafini, how are you today?
Dr. Chris Serafini: I’m great, thanks for having me.
RC: Well thanks for being here.
Question 1: As a member of The Foundation for Wellness Professionals, you donate your time to present wellness events in the community. How did you get involved with this program?
RC: So as a member of The Foundation for Wellness Professionals, you donate your time to present wellness events in the community. How did you get involved with this program?
Dr. Chris Serafini: Once again good question. I would say about five years ago I saw in an email. It was basically an email describing a little bit about the foundation and they were offering a webinar to discuss the aspects of the foundation and once I attended the webinar, I just really liked the whole idea of going out in the community, donating time and services. Because there are so many people that don’t get exposure to this information and knowing that this is what I do on a day to day basis I really like it. It’s like a treat for me to go out to the community and do the topics. But that’s really how I got exposed to it is just attending a webinar.
Question 2: Since you are bringing health and wellness education to the workplace, are some of these employees being introduced to this valuable information for the first time?
RC: And since you are bringing health and wellness education to the workplace, are some of these employees being introduced to this valuable information just for the first time?
Dr. Chris Serafini: I’d say yeah. A lot of the attendees are because I try to keep the presentations and the information new and up-to-date. I try to find the latest research and information. Many many times the attendees are hearing some of this information for the first time. You know there’s lots of things that as a doctor we’re exposed to through continuing education hours, webinars, seminars… things like that that the general population or public doesn’t really get introduced to until further down the line. So yeah. Many times it is the first time.
Question 3: What events or workshops are the most popular with employees?
RC: And what events or workshops are the most popular with the employees?
Dr. Chris Serafini: I’d say Stay Fit While You Sit is probably our most popular but really close behind if equally most important but second would be Stress Management. Many many employees out there have stress in the workforce and they talk about it all the time and that is obviously a big topic that we do as well.
Question 4: From an employer standpoint, what are some results they have seen from these programs?
RC: And from an employer standpoint, what are some results they have seen from these programs?
Dr. Chris Serafini: Really just an increase in the mindset and the awareness of health and wellness. And many times the bottom line as far as health insurance premiums, when you start to educate the workforce and there’s been many studies that have proven this but when you start to educate the employees about health and wellness and taking care of themselves and taking care of their bodies, the employers notice changes all around. Decrease sick days, more productivity, once again decreased healthy insurance premiums, really their bottom line.
Question 5: If a company was interested in bringing you in to run a program, how would they get started?
RC: And if a company was interested in bringing you in to run a program, how would they get started?
Dr. Chris Serafini: Just contacting me really via phone or email or whatever. At that point we would just cover the different options that we can do as far as a corporate wellness program, there are many different options. If they wanted to do a talk, we would just go over the topics and then could choose one and at that point we would just pick a date and a time and move forward from there.
RC: Okay great, so thank you so much Dr. Serafini. We know you’re extremely busy so I just want to thank you for your time and your help today.
