"Operation: Eat Right is all about better eating through awareness and making new habits," explains Dawn McMillian, wellness specialist. "Controlling portion sizes, preparing healthy meals, eating more fruits and vegetables, and keeping track of what you eat are some of the areas of focus in Operation: Eat Right."

Emergency back-up care offers a safety net for employee caregivers

When Emory announced that it was offering an emergency back-up care benefit, Rebeca Villacis-Geraldo, a patient care coordinator at Winship Cancer Institute/Emory Midtown immediately signed up. As the primary caregiver for her elderly mother who suffers from dementia, she knew a time would come when she would need it.

Offered through a partnership with Bright Horizons, Emory's Back-up Care Advantage Program provides employees and Laney Graduate School students with temporary care for times when normal caregiving arrangements break down. In these high-stress situations, Bright Horizons will arrange for temporary care, either at a high-quality child care center or with a fully screened and credentialed in-home caregiver. It is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for infants through the elderly.
