               Lunch & Learn Seminar Overview
       As part of your participation in the Action Long Island Wellness Challenge, you have the
opportunity to educate your employees on various health and wellness topics through Lunch &
Learn Seminars. A “Lunch & Learn Seminar” is a 30 minute to an hour long presentation by a
health and wellness professional that comes to your office at a time that is most convenient for your
company (typically this is the lunch time hour).

 Your company will receive credit for the amount of seminars you bring into the work
         place as well as the number of employees that attend each seminar.

Lunch & Learn Seminar Guidelines:

    There must be at least 10 people present at each seminar. The only exception is for seminars
     specifically “For the Employer”.
    You may request as many seminars from as many organizations as you choose.
    The seminar is free and does not include lunch. We recommend providing a healthy snack or
     lunch for attending employees.
    Please fill out the Seminar Request Form (page 6) and send it to the corresponding L&L
     Seminar Leader ASAP (page 5).
    Please request your seminar in a timely fashion and as far in advance as possible. Please
     include multiple dates and times in which your company is available. We cannot guarantee a
     seminar will always be available at the times you request.
    Please have participants complete the Program Evaluation Form (page 7) at the
     conclusion of the seminar. Submit Evaluation Forms to Action Long Island via email:

The L&L Seminar Leaders have agreed to the following:
 1) To Attend the Long Island Wellness Challenge Orientation on February 8, 2011
 2) To have a dedicated contact person for Lunch & Learn Seminar Requests
 3) To respond to Seminar Requests within 1 Week of receiving Request Form (Page 6)
 4) To provide an educational presentation that is informative, useful and tactful.
 5) Never to use the presentation solely for the purpose of selling a product or solicitation.

Venous disease is a very common malady affecting 60% of Americans in one or more of its various stages.
Symptoms can range from mere cosmetic annoyances to clotting or bleeding and in the worst cases it can even
be the inciting factor for the development of cancer. Yet despite this, a majority of medical practitioners
consider venous disease to be relatively unimportant.

As a long time Board Certified Surgeon, I can tell you that medical students are taught little about the disorders
affecting veins and even vascular surgeons are surprisingly uneducated about the venous side of the circulatory
system. As a result the general population has little knowledge of the simple and effective treatments that are
available today.

At AVCS, we are continuously surprised and dismayed at how many men and woman suffer from venous
disease and allow it to undermine their well-being. So many of our patients complain that their legs feel tired,
achy and painful or appear swollen, discolored or just ugly. They are embarrassed about the way their legs
look. Many have given up wearing skirts or hide their legs in heavy socks. Others will not wear shorts or
sandals during the summer or enjoy the beach or a day on the boat with the family. While that may seem a
minor inconvenience to some, it has become glaringly obvious to us that these patients are denying themselves
some of the basic pleasures of life and in so doing are diminishing the quality of their lives. It is well known
and we firmly agree that a poor quality of life contributes to poor health as well.
The staff at Advanced Vein Care Solutions has dedicated themselves to bridging the gap between the current
science of vein care and the public’s lack of knowledge. Our mission is to educate patients as to how they can
improve the health of their legs and prevent the development of venous disease while diagnosing the individual
patient's specific physiologic and anatomic abnormality, and assisting them in obtaining the best and most
advanced treatment methods available to meet their needs.

                       We do not treat veins, we educate and treat our patients!
    Our presentation, provided personally by Andrew J. Rochman, M.D., founder and Medical Director of
    Advanced Vein Care Solutions, will include a thorough power-point presentation (with before & after
    photos, signs, symptoms & causes as well as what is now being offered for treating this common
    disease). It will last between 20 to 30 minutes and can be tailored on the spot to the needs and
    desires of the audience. Plenty of time will be made available for questions & answers and attendees
    will be directed to a number of sources where further information can be obtained as needed. Please
    contact Melissa or Lisa at Advanced Vein Care Solutions in order to schedule a presentation.

Dr. Rochman is a native New Yorker, living on Long Island for the past 20 years. His training is in General
Surgery in which he is Board Certified. He is an active member of the American Medical Association, The
New York State Medical Society and The American College of Phlebology. With over a decade of experience

                                    Long Term Care Is the Elephant in the Room

Critical Planning Tools to Protect Your Family Financially, Physically and Emotionally

Americans are living longer lives. Advances in medical care and healthy lifestyle choices will help more people
reach their 80s, 90s and some will reach age 100. Long Term Care Planning is critical for today’s families and
is a growing concern as the baby boomers age. Once a person reaches age 70, there is a 70% chance they will
need long term care in their lifetime.

Families need to prepare given the consequences of a long-term care event. Long-term care costs will affect
them financially, physically and emotionally. Today’s workforce, and especially the “ sandwich generation”
must plan for their care, their children’s care and for their aging parents. They recognize the importance of the
planning and need a solid foundation and understanding of their options.

The consequence to employees in lost productivity and absenteeism are measured in the billions.

We will present the Myths & Facts of Long-Term Care including:
            What is Long-Term Care?
            Long term-care is a family issue

            Do you have a plan to pay for Long-Term Care?
            What are your options for paying for Long-Term Care?
            Medicare and Medicaid do not pay for Long-Term Care
            Self funding options
            Long-Term Care Insurance
            Importance of applying younger and healthier
            Buying earlier will cost less over a lifetime and will not risk insurability
            How Long-Term Care insurance works
            State tax incentive of 20% NYS Tax Credit on LTC Insurance premiums
            Federal business deductions on LTC premiums
            Employer offered or sponsored LTC Insurance plans
            The importance of a discussion on long-term care planning with your family.
            The consequences of not having a plan for care will have an effect on the family, income stream
              and retirement portfolio.

The health of your employees is a company’s most precious asset. We at the Maurer Foundation share in the
hope of a healthy future for all workforce members.

Joining The Maurer Foundation’s Breast Health Education Corporate Wellness initiative is one of the
wisest decisions an employer can make.
     Given the benefits of risk reduction and early detection, employers who promote breast health
        education are engaging in one of the most pro-employee/pro-employer management decisions an
        organization can make.
     We help employees or family members understand and take advantage of an important screening
        benefit that in most cases is already being provided for them thru fully insured plans.
     We help employees understand the important role that early detection has in early treatment and
        increased survival rates.
     Healthier employees lead to a reduction in sick days and increases employee moral.

There are multiple ways to receive The Maurer Foundation Corporate Wellness Program; delivered in person
by our trained educators at your facility, by computer through an online webinar or any combination of
these two.

                                CORPORATE WELLNESS PROGRAM

The 45 minute program clearly and persuasively explains how nutrition, fitness and everyday life habits can
reduce, or possibly increase, the risk of breast cancer. Our certified educators demonstrate how to perform the
most advanced and effective form of breast self-examination. For our on-site seminars, educators use
extremely lifelike, textured models which closely resemble real breast tissue to teach breast self exam to
participants. These models contain embedded pieces which feel very similar to the type of lumps that breast
surgeons might consider suspicious.

All our program promote a healthy work life balance by educating participants on:
     Risk factors (smoking, alcohol, obesity, environment, other)
     Healthy lifestyle choices
     Awareness
     The Roles of Fitness
     Being your own Health Advocate

Follow-up question and answer time is provided for up to 24 hours following the seminar and webinar to
ensure that support is provided and all questions have been answered.

                       The Corporate Wellness Solution of Long Island
Ellen Richter and Theresa Milillo of The Corporate Wellness Solution of Long Island are bringing wellness to
organizations through the empowerment of its individuals. TCWSLI is revolutionizing the wellness movement by
teaching tools that create internal changes that naturally foster healthy choices. Over 90% of an individual's behavior is
driven by the subconscious belief patterns they hold. The body has a natural tendency to stay comfortable and maintain
status quo. In order to reset the internal thermostat, one needs awareness and a toolkit for easy internal transformation.

TCWSLI brings the most powerful form of Energy Psychology, EFT, along with Theta Healing Belief Processes and Law
of Attraction techniques, for immediate stress relief and improved wellness. This ultimately fosters greater productivity in
the workplace.

TCWSLI presents “Wellness From Within-The Mind Body Connection” bringing tools to organizations through
exciting lunch and learn programs such as:

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) for Immediate Relief of Stress, Anxiety and Cravings (Ellen)- - What
if you could learn a technique to instantly dissolve stress, anxiety and cravings on the spot? How empowering and freeing
would that be? Learn the most powerful form of energy psychology and melt stress away, eliminate cravings that wreak
havoc with your blood sugar and mood, restore your sense of wellbeing, and watch your productivity soar!
Bust Through Limiting Beliefs and Apply Law of Attraction Techniques to Create Your Life by Design
(Ellen)- We all carry negative limiting beliefs about the world and ourselves that can keep us stuck in certain areas of our
life. If you were told at an early age that you were overweight or sick or that life is hard, you will live this reality. Identify
and bust these limiting beliefs and learn Law of Attraction tools to create new ones. Open your mind to new possibilities
and watch your life shift!
How to Make Your Subconscious Mind Work for You (Ellen) - Did you know that over 90% of your behavior is
controlled by your subconscious mind and is driven by beliefs and thoughts you are usually unaware of? This is the main
reason people often do not reach their goals. Learn how this very important part of your mind works and learn skills to
retrain it so that it works for you, not against you.

Fulfillment in the Workplace - Stress Free in 68 Seconds (Theresa) – Do you have more work than you can
handle? Are your days filled with interruptions and deadlines? Do you find yourself having knee jerk reactions to
unpleasant situations? Did you know that all of your power to change a situation is in the now, in the moment you become
aware? This Law of Attraction based presentation will show you how to “shift your awareness” to rise above the demands
of your work environment. Catch yourself and move from stressful to stress-free in 68 seconds and bring fulfillment to
your work life.
The Law of Attraction and Your Well Being – Visualization for Intentional Living (Theresa) - Everyone
visualizes whether they know it or not. Your thoughts become things because of the absolute perfection of the Law of
Attraction. Gain a deeper understanding of its principles and harness the power of your imagination to intentionally
become the master of your destiny, creating the life you truly desire for yourself. This program can be offered in one
session or in three “progressive visualization” sessions.
Turning Difficulties into Successes (Theresa) – Are there really accidents, mistakes, coincidences? Do you keep
having the same experiences over and over again? You are where you are and that is in perfect harmony with who you are
becoming. Find out if your subconscious beliefs are blocking your well being through Theta Healing energy testing. This
technique can assist you in identifying limiting beliefs and reprogram them, (like reprogramming your computer) and
allow yourself to experience new and beneficial feelings.
