Walking Bingo: A Peoples Health program motivates older adults to move
Creative ideas and approaches contribute to the success of Peoples Health as it strives “to provide high quality, cost-effective healthcare services” to its health plan members. "We also place a lot of emphasis on healthy, united communities," comments Director of Community Relations Leslie Louviere Keen. Walking Bingo is among the free programs the company offers to older adults who live in the community. Launched in March 2014, the program blends the classic game with physical activity to foster active play, motivating sedentary older adults to exercise.
