Health Promotion Workshop

The workshop includes the unique educational health quiz game "Salubria The Health Game" proven to influence lifestyle behaviour positively

 

WHY WORKSHOP

Need to promote health in the workplace?

With demands of the workplace growing ever greater due to advancements in technology and the nature of work in general becoming more sedentary, the need to help staff stay as healthy as possible is more important than ever before. This starts with raising levels of health awareness and providing tools to help colleagues to defend their health. The Salubria Health Workshop has 2 special tools to help.

The Salubria workshop can help

What makes this workshop different to any other health workshop or wellness initiative are 2 special tools….

Tool 1: Health Quiz Game – Salubria The Health Game is a quiz at the heart of the workshop. Playing the game helps participants to appreciate the important links between making healthy lifestyle choices and preventing lifestyle diseases. Research proves that learning through play actually reinforces the learning – so people learn, and retain more this way.

The quiz presents powerful health messages, and all questions have been validated by health professionals. Exposure to this game has proven to influence lifestyle behaviour positively.

Tool 2: Demonstration of, and optional participation in, a simple, equipment-free ‘7 Minute Simple Hi-Intensity Workout’ approved by The American College of Sports Medicine. See “The Workshop” for more details.

The game is currently being used to encourage behaviour change by; employers, teachers, fitness and health professionals.

"The critical importance of a healthy lifestyle and the very real consequences of not managing our weight are conveyed in an engaging and fun way in SalubriaTM The Health Game. What I really like about the game are the helpful suggestions offered in the 'Info Points' in each question. Allied to that, the fact that the questions are thoroughly researched, professionally validated, and list their individual sources, makes SalubriaTM The Health Game a very credible educational resource."
