We Care About YOU!

YulistaCARES is proud to introduce the next series in the Yulista Wellness Program. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States. But through our Yulista Wellness Program, we’re providing a wide range of awareness events and heart healthy resources!

Note… While these initiatives are geared toward Team Yulista (our internal teams), our lunch & learn series and weekly cafe specials are open to the public at our headquarters in Redstone Gateway. If you’re interested in attending, reach out to cares@yulista.com and we’ll pass along the details!


Lunch and Learn Series and Heart-Healthy Lunch Specials:

In February, we will be teaming up with the American Heart Association in partnership with National Heart Month. Included will be four weekly Lunch and Learns. These will be free to attend and accessible both in person as well as virtually. Every Wednesday in February at 11:30 am,  AHA will be speaking on  different topics as they relate to Heart Health. The topics will cover topics like nutrition, blood pressure monitoring, reclaiming your rhythm, and family focused health habits. We’ll also be providing a Heart-Healthy Option to purchase as part of the Wednesday Lunch Special at Cafe Us.

For Team Yulista, we will be sending out meeting invites for each Lunch and Learn. We ask that you indicate whether you will be attending in person or virtually. Please note that due to increase COVID cases, we are limiting the number of in-person attendees. For the general public, please reach out to cares@yulista.com for the virtual option. All presentations will be available to view after each Lunch and Learn.
