 Employees of Landline Internet Mobile Entertainment (L.I.M.E.) in western Jamaica got treated to a Health and Wellness Fair, put on by the company at the St. James Parish Church on Tuesday March 16.

    Even though LIME employees were the main focus of the fair, pensioners, young and senior persons who have health concerns were also welcomed at the event, and with Sagicor as the major sponsor, the fair is the second of such with the first being in Kingston in December
of last year. .
    "Concentrating on our employees is the main focus of this fair, for we find that a number of them are associated with some of the disease as with older folks, so we want to help them and in the process cut cost on health insurance, " stated L.I.M.E. HR manager, Mauleen Haynes.
    Numerous booths from stakeholders were present at the fair, all displaying to visitors the many different ways of preserving and maintaining one's health or well-being. Booths were seen from Sagicor, Grace Ltd, Ocean Spray, Red Lane Spa, Broadbent Jamaica Limited, Jamaica AIDS support for Life, Gymkhana, National Blood Transfusion Service, Coorporate and Credit Union Limited, Welch's, along with a host of others.
    Visitors were offered blood pressure and sugar level checks, eye checks, massages and counselling just to name a few. Nutritional food and beverages were as well given, along with health information and presentations.
    Also associated with the fair were two seminars, the first was on stress management where Counselling Psychologist, Jillian Stephens, sought to explain the means by which one can regulate stress and depression so as to prolong health. The second seminar was conducted by Pat Fletcher who presented on nutrition and longevity.
