The Lifestyle Enhancement Activity Program, used by school systems and other employers in the Lewis County area, rewards workers who meet individual diet and fitness goals. At Logan Aluminum in Russellville, Logan Alive participants earn cash for their efforts and save money on healthier choices in the company cafeteria.
