Inflammation information

Webinar to be held June 12

The June 12 session will address the role of inflammation in the development of several diseases.

Postal employees can participate in an upcoming webinar on inflammation and how it affects the body.

The session, “Douse the Internal Flame: The Role of Chronic Inflammation,” will be held June 12 at noon Eastern Time.

Mounting evidence suggests that chronic inflammation plays a role in the development of cancer, diabetes, and coronary artery and Alzheimer’s diseases.

Participants will learn how inflammation can affect long-term health and how to reduce or prevent the “internal flame” with diet and lifestyle changes.

Thu Huynh, a nutritionist at Giant Food, and Coletta Meyer, manager of health engagement at GEHA, a not-for-profit provider of health plans for federal employees, will present the webinar.

Advance registration is required.

Participation is voluntary. Non-exempt employees may only participate off the clock or during authorized breaks.
