Look for health tips and information about educational events via email. Mr. and Ms. Amazing “Flat Stanley” dolls will travel to each team throughout the year, so you can show off your team and take pictures with the dolls. Your photos could be shared in a variety of ways, including St. Anthony’s This Week, boards around the hospital and the Amazing You Facebook group.  If you’re interested in joining the Amazing You Facebook group to interact with others in the program, contact us at amazingyou@samcstl.org.


Your team leader is your primary resource for information and questions about the Amazing You program, but Wellness Committee members are available to assist you. Just contact us at amazingyou@samcstl.org.

We look forward to the year ahead and hope you have fun along the way!
