Herbalife is Emphasizing Women’s and Men’s Health on Social Media in April

April 1, 2016
Spring has sprung and as many in the Northern Hemisphere emerge from winter hibernation to enjoy more outdoor activities, our monthly social media focus on men’s and women’s health seems especially appropriate. After all, men and women of all ages can benefit from increased activity and the positive effects of regular exercise.
According to a 2011 Gallup poll, “Americans typically exercise more in the spring and summer and less in the fall and winter.”
Getting more physical activity and making the right food and lifestyle choices can have positive benefits for men and women. We are sharing a variety of educational and informative content this month to help people get healthier and happier:
Our resident registered dietitian and Herbalife Director of Nutrition Training Susan Bowerman, M.S., R.D., C.S.S.D., F.A.N.D., will be discussing nutrition for women and men in two question and answer videos. Topics will include:
- What are some nutrients women may lack?
- Why is iron so important for women?
- How can women get more iron?
- Why is getting enough calcium so important?
- How can women get more calcium?
- What are some common dieting mistakes that women make?
- What are some common nutrition mistakes that men make?
- What nutrients do men often lack in their diet?
- Do men and women approach weight loss differently?
- What are some ways men can improve their diets?
Our social media channels will also showcase content as part of National Public Health Week, which runs from April 4 – 10. This year’s theme is “Healthiest Nation 2030 ‘Healthiest Nation in One Generation,’” a timely topic considering almost 35% of American adults are obese. And at the same time as National Public Health Week, our social media channels will feature content for the World Health Organization’s “World Health Day” coming up on April 7.
Beyond social media, Herbalife is involved in other public health, wellness and nutrition efforts this month:
- On April 1 in San Diego, Herbalife is participating in the American Society for Nutrition satellite symposium where nutrition and health professionals will discuss the connection, and underlying science, between nutrition and wellness.
- A week later in Washington D.C., Herbalife is participating in an “Education, Policy & Creating Change: Cooking for Life” panel hosted by Common Threads, a non-profit organization that promotes hands-on cooking and nutrition education for children, families and teachers in underserved communities across the country.
- And again in D.C. from April 20 – 22, Herbalife is taking part in HR Tech Fest, the premier human resources technology conference where thought leaders and experts will come together to share knowledge, experience and innovation all designed to help each other pinpoint new and different ways to transform their business through HR and technology.
We like to say that there “is no slow time at Herbalife” and we are certainly living up to that in April.
