Healthy Times radio show tackles winter flu, pertussis

Kim Harris, Yolanda Loveless and John Moses joined us on today’s Healthy Times radio show on 93.9 FM WLXU as we talked about pertussis, the flu and hepatitis A. Yolanda and Kim shared their nursing knowledge, while John shadowed host Kevin Hall to learn more about the program and how it’s helping Lexington be well. If you missed it this morning, you catch it re-airing at noon Sunday, Feb. 10!

LexWork rides the bus

To gain firsthand insights into Lexington’s public transportation and its riders, LexWork held their meeting on the bus! One of the highlights from the ride along was the impromptu opportunity two of our members, Cary Plummer and David Boggs took to share employment resources with those on the bus. It was a great chance to connect with our community. The bus offers reliable transportation to many. If you or anyone you know need help planning your next ride, contact Emily Elliott at (859) 244-2018 or eelliott@lextran.com (Se Habla Español).

LexWork is scheduled to meet Feb. 13. For more information or to become involved, please contact Jeanette Hart.
