Get Healthy Now Wellness Center Member of the Month - July
Dorothy Hickerson, Clinical Consultant, Kent School of Social Work
Meet Dorothy Hickerson: She is GHN’s July Member of the Month and also celebrates her first anniversary with UofL this month!
Visiting the GHN Wellness Center has helped Dorothy reach many of her goals, one of which is visiting the Wellness Center at least 5 days every week. In fact, she has logged over 100 visits to the Wellness Center since January 2015! As a result of working out, she has more energy and is more active overall.
What’s her favorite GHN offering? “It has been great to work with a Personal Trainer. [My trainer] has helped me identify some workout strategies to meet my needs and keep me interested and motivated.” When she travels for work, she takes her training schedule on the road. Talk about dedication!
Dorothy has many hobbies and interests: she enjoys going to the movies, reading, working out, and watching sports – especially baseball. Dorothy also likes to travel and hopes to “work up to trying some of the group activities offered at the Wellness Center, and… participate in a 5K sometime within the next year.”
Getting to see results from her workouts, the convenience of the GHN Wellness Center hours, and the support and encouragement offered by the Get Healthy Now staff is what keeps her on track. Not to mention she has a laser focus
on her goals: Dorothy has lost weight and increased her activity substantially this year- a true testament to dedication. Three cheers for Dorothy- we’ll be cheering you on every step of the way!
