NAGE Health and Wellness Information Day A Success!

The NAGE Health and Wellness Inforamtion days have been a success! 

NAGE Executive Vice President/Local 207 President Theresa McGoldrick has spearheaded an effort to inform NAGE state employees of benefits that NAGE provides. The first “NAGE Health and Wellness Day” was held at the MITC building in Chelsea. Over 350 NAGE members showed up and learned about all the benefits NAGE provides to our state members. The event was so successful that we held a second Health and Wellness day at the McCormack Building in Boston on January 31. The event, which lasted over 2 hours, attracted over 300 members who were excited to learn about all NAGE has to offer.  Additioinal events have been held at 1000 Washington St., the Hurley Building and Causeway St. in Boston.  Events were also held at Newport Ave. in Quincy, MA and Dwight St. in Springfield, MA.  

We are planning on continuing our health and wellness tour over the next several months and will keep members informed on where events will be held. If you are interested in learning more we encourage members to visit the Benefits section of our website.
