In January, Terri Luedtke -- a two-time cancer survivor -- started a new job at New Hanover Regional Medical Center. At New Employee Orientation, NHRMC Fitness Center Program Coordinator Sheri Albertson encouraged all new employees to get involved with the Jack Barto Center for Employee Fitness. She detailed the available programs that help employees work toward achieving fitness goals.

“I was sitting in Orientation, and in walks this short, spunky woman,” Terri said. “She was so pumped about fitness and the fitness center that I just had to see what all the hype was.”
