UnitedHealthcare of North Texas returned as a presenting sponsor for the 2017 Flowserve Cowboys Kickoff Luncheon at AT&T Stadium on August 30.

The annual event celebrates the beginning of the NFL season. During the luncheon, numerous awards are presented, including the Ed Block Courage Award presented by UnitedHealthcare.

This year’s recipient was Jim Maurer, the Cowboys’ head athletic trainer. Maurer was recognized by his peers for his constant professionalism in his commitment to providing players with the highest quality care.

All proceeds from the Flowserve Cowboys Kickoff Luncheon and silent auction benefit the Courage House at Happy Hill Farms and the North Central Texas Academy. In light of the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey in South Texas, Happy Hill Farms announced they will be using the funds raised to help students, families and alumni affected by the disaster.

UnitedHealthcare Donates Solar Eclipse Glasses to Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas

 

UnitedHealthcare of North Texas donated solar eclipse glasses to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas at Williams Preparatory School on Aug. 17.

UnitedHealthcare of North Texas donated solar eclipse glasses to Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas to highlight the importance of eye safety during the solar eclipse visible on Monday, Aug. 21.  

This rare celestial event—the first total eclipse of the sun to span coast to coast across the U.S. mainland in almost a century—is a spectacular occurrence; however, there are precautions people should take to help maintain their eye health while witnessing the spectacle in its full glory. Looking at a solar eclipse without proper protection can cause serious eye damage, including blurry vision that can last months, or even permanent problems.

Proper eclipse-viewing glasses are heavily tinted, much more so than regular sunglasses. Certified eclipse-viewing glasses will enable you to see the moon track across the orb of the sun until it creates a total eclipse, revealing the sun’s brilliant corona.

A list of approved solar eclipse sunglass vendors is available here.

UnitedHealthcare of North Texas CEO Scott Flannery (center) and Dr. Health E. Hound provided students glasses and safe solar eclipse viewing information.
