BLOOMFIELD, Conn., September 20, 2011 – Is life stressing you out and making you sick? Are you super-sizing your meals without even knowing it? The brand new Cigna Mobile Learning Lab, which kicks off its fall tour at the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) conference taking place now, lets consumers learn first hand how stress, portion control (or lack thereof) and other lifestyles choices can impact health. The 18-wheeler interactive healthy mobile center is a living breathing example of Cigna’s new brand “GO YOU” and is armed with new tools that will touch individuals and help them take control of their health.
The Mobile Learning Lab offers an array of new information and helpful lessons to help “you”—the consumer—harness your power to change your health, such as:
- A stress IQ test featuring a fun quiz, offering interesting stress-related facts and tips to help manage stress and improve health.
- Real-life examples of portion distortion, proper plate distribution and how to engage in healthier eating.
- A weight vest (weighing 20 pounds!) for you to try on and feel how the extra weight impacts day-to-day activity like taking the stairs or dancing!
In addition to the Mobile Learning Lab, Cigna is taking its new brand and personalized health approach to the leaders of cities and counties throughout the nation through its sponsorship and appearance at ICMA’s national conference in Milwaukee.
“With the challenges facing our economy today, it’s even more critical to ensure that our nation’s city and county leaders are focused on controlling health care costs through the prevention of disease and staying healthy,” states Bert Scott, President, U.S. Commercial Markets, Cigna. “That’s why we are kicking off our fall tour at the ICMA conference – to help educate our nation’s civic leaders and give them hands-on learning of Cigna’s new brand promise, “GO YOU.”
After its launch at ICMA, the Cigna Mobile Learning Lab will travel to a variety of community, client and employee locations. Upcoming public stops include:
- Phoenix – October 2: University of Phoenix Stadium (Cardinals game)
