SAISD is partnering with Shannon Health & Wellness and ASUFit to provide a voluntary program for 100 SAISD employees. There is no cost to the employees chosen for this pilot program.

Good nutrition is one of the keys to good health. You can improve your nutrition by regularly eating foods that have a lot of vitamins and minerals in them, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low- or nonfat dairy.
Exercise and eating right are only 2 components of being well. Practicing a healthy lifestyle can help you battle the diseases that go along with poor health including Diabetes, Hypertension (Stress), Obesity, Bad Cholesterol, and High Blood Pressure.
