Sage Products sponsors American Nurses Association’s Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation, launching May 1

Promotes Nurse Safety Champions and chance to win free admission to NTI 2018

CARY, IL, May 1, 2017 – Sage Products LLC is giving nurses the opportunity to be recognized as champions of safety in the workplace through its sponsorship of the Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation™ (HNHN) Grand Challenge. The challenge, which launches today, is a movement designed to transform the health of the nation by improving the health of America’s 3.6 million registered nurses.

“At Sage we are dedicated to making healthcare better through Safe Patient Handling,” says Jeff Gorton, Senior Director of Marketing for Sage Products. “To shift the paradigm, we need champions within the industry to spread the prevention message when it comes to nursing related injuries.”

Sage’s sponsorship highlights the importance of having healthy nurses serving as role models for each other, as well as for the patients and communities they serve. And for nurses, this starts with promoting a safe work environment.

By visiting the Sage website and signing up to be a Nurse Safety Champion, nurses will receive a social media badge acknowledging their commitment to the cause. From there, they are encouraged to refer nurse colleagues and friends; each sign up and referral gives participants an additional entry into a drawing for free registration to the 2018 National Teaching Institute and Critical Care Exposition (NTI) in Boston.

The HNHN Grand Challenge will connect and engage individual nurses, employers of nurses, state nurses associations, and specialty nurses associations to take action to improve their health in five key areas: physical activity, rest, nutrition, quality of life, and safety.  The HNHN Grand Challenge will also provide a web platform to inspire action, cultivate friendly competition, provide resources to users, gather user data, and connect nurses with each other, employers, and organizations.
