Memorial Day Volunteer Event

Observing Memorial Day

For those with the MFLC program, they recognize that Memorial Day isn’t simply a day off from work or a chance to fire up the grill. It is a day to remember the sacrifices of our fallen service members and acknowledge the toll their families experience. Read their tribute to Monday's day of observance.

Established on May 5, 1868 by General John Logan in his General Order Number 11, Memorial Day was first observed on May 30, 1868. General Logan wrote:

Let us, then, at the time appointed, gather around their sacred remains and garland the passionless mounds above them with choicest flowers of springtime... Let us in this solemn presence renew our psledges to aid and assist those whom they have left among us as sacred charges upon the nation’s gratitude - the soldier’s and sailor’s widow and orphan.

Most, if not all, of us have family members or friends who have made the ultimate sacrifice. We know the ongoing struggle of grief and reordering of lives. Let’s pause to remember these service members’ contributions to protect our freedoms. How could your memories of these heroes influence the way you support your MFLC clients in your work?

Thank you for your extra efforts at outreach, making yourself available, and providing many small kindnesses to our military families every day.

Holistic Health and Fitness (H2F) Industry Day and Exposition

Holistic Health and Fitness (H2F) Industry Day and Exposition

On April 30 - May 1, US Army TRADOC and the Center for Initial Military Training (CIMT) hosted the Holistic Health and Fitness (H2F) Industry Day and Exposition at Joint Base Langley-Eustis. This two-day event centered on H2F—the Army's new comprehensive, integrated, and immersive health and fitness system. The system addresses the physical and non-physical components of fitness through performance professionals, programs, facilities, equipment, and education.

AFSC/Magellan Federal representatives attended both days to learn about the new H2F concept, and to offer innovative solutions within the cognitive enhancement category of research. Through various networking events, presentations, and a booth at the Expo, PCM Allie May and MRT-PE Kacey Gibson were able to highlight the current services provided by all 26 R2 Performance Centers and recommend opportunities for growth within the new model. With so much attention focused on the new Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT), the team illustrated how AFSC/Magellan Federal Performance Experts can foster a growth mindset in Soldiers and combine mental skills with a physical routine to ensure that Soldiers remain confident, composed, and focused during each event.

MFLC Success Story at Joint Base Lewis-McChord

MFLC Success Story at Joint Base Lewis-McChord

Military & Family Life Counselors, Scarlett Ekeroma and Bahar Azun-Smith created a Month of the Military Child project with the staff and students at Carter Lake Elementary. Over 500 people contributed a feather to the mural, which was attached to the colorful wing formation. Staff members were asked to write a positive affirmation to describe military children on their feathers, while students could either write their name or a positive affirmation about themselves. Bahar and Scarlett presented the project at the school's assembly on 28 March 2019. The mural has since been claimed for permanent placement in the art and music department.

Join us in thanking Scarlett and Bahar for all of their hard work and for making an impact during the Month of the Military Child.

MFLC Success Story and Coining

MFLC Success Story and Coining

Suzanne Baroody garnered praise for her positive impact with four units at United States Army Garrison Baumholder, Germany. She received two coins for her exemplary service to an embedded unit whose service members and command experienced significant challenges and stress due to the overlap in training and mission. Dependable and always willing to assist, Suzanne participated in supervision and shared ideas with other MFLCs. After completing her rotation and returning stateside, she reached out to the MFLC who succeeded her to help ensure a smooth transition.

Well done, Suzanne! Stay up-to-date on the achievements of the MFLC program on MagellanNOW’s AFSC/Magellan Federal channel.

Compliance Coin Program Launch

Compliance Coin Program Launch

The Compliance Coin Program is a new initiative launched by the Compliance Department. Following the military tradition of a commander awarding a Commander Coin our Compliance Coin Program wants to recognize employees for their outstanding ethical behavior. As part of the program, employees and supervisors will have an opportunity to nominate individuals who have demonstrated their undivided commitment to complying with our company's policies and procedures during difficult situations where doing the right thing might not be the easiest solution. All nominations must include sufficient information in order to properly assess each case and determine if a candidate meets the criteria for recognition.

Our first recipient was Ms. Paula Mucci from the CFPB program. Paula was awarded the Compliance Coin after she surrendered a $25 gift card that she received as a thank you from an anonymous client. On top of that, Paula asked that the money be donated to female veterans in need. Paula could have easily kept the gift card and not tell anyone about it. However, Paula did the right thing by contacting our Compliance Department to disclose and surrender the gift card, which is in compliance with Magellan's Conflicts of Interest Policy.

Farewell to Mike and Earl

We would like to thank both Mike and Earl for their dedication and commitment to AFSC/Magellan Federal’s mission. Mike’s leadership over the last year has been instrumental to our successful integration with Magellan Health. Through his support of both AFSC and Magellan, we were able to remain focused on our mission while completing the numerous necessary tasks required to bring these organizations together. Earl is an accomplished leader that has brought a wealth of human capital expertise gained from a distinguished military career and more than a decade of experience managing and consulting across the federal government. Joining AFSC in 2011, he led the effort to pursue and win positions on government IDIQs.

Both Mike and Earl will be greatly missed and we wish them well on their future endeavors.

Message from Barry Smith: Announcing Magellan's 2019 Goals

2019 is off to a fast start – with great opportunity to make a difference. I look forward to this time each year when we roll out our strategies and goals across all the business units. It’s a reminder of what great things Magellan is capable of accomplishing when we work together as a team. And, it fills me with fresh optimism and new hope as I look ahead at what we are driving toward.

I’d like to share with you an overview of our enterprise-wide goals, both as context and as a reminder that all our efforts come together in a powerful way. Every employee in the company has a role in our success. Please take a few minutes to read the below plan and ask your leaders if you have any questions.

In 2019, I will provide updates based on our performance and results each quarter, and you will also receive periodic business updates from other Magellan leaders across the company, in addition to the ongoing performance touch points in place with your leaders.

We have much hard work to do. But, I know Magellan is not merely ready for the challenge – we are eager for it. I am confident that we will produce outstanding results working together.

Best,
Barry Smith

Magellan Crisis Communications

New! Magellan Health Crisis Communications Resource Page

Sadly, nearly every day we are faced with traumatic events that impact our clients and members. Whether it be weather-related events, shootings or other emergencies, these traumatic events are frightening. Some of the events make national news, and impact members from many clients, while other events are more local, and may impact one or a few clients. When an event impacts many people in a region, Magellan Health opens a crisis line and encourages the public to call for counseling and other resources.

In response to traumatic events, Magellan has developed a central location for crisis communications resources. The resource page, includes four Magellan tip sheets available to download, and links to resources on the Ready.gov website, such as guides and videos for nearly 30 different types of traumatic events. The purpose of this page is to show that we are proactive and that we care. We realize that we may not be aware of all traumatic events that our members encounter, but our resources are available 24/7/365.

This resource page can be shared publicly. The tip sheets on the resource page are available in both English and Spanish. If someone you know could use this information, please share.
