February is Heart Month

February is American Heart Month and Feb. 4th is National Wear Red Day. Sadly cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. This is true across race and gender.

Webinar: COVID-19 - Don't Let Your Guard Down

We cannot let our guard down and lapse on the known safety and health measures that help reduce the spread of the virus. These basic health and safety considerations must be seen as paramount for maintaining layers of protection in the workplace. CUB will host training sessions with AFT in which participants will learn about five key strategies to minimize exposure to COVID-19 and how to keep yourself safe at work. Additionally, topics on creating a safe workplace, vaccination, testing and available leave if you become sick with COVID-19 will be discussed.
