Online PR News – 14-May-2012 – Philadelphia, PA – PHILADELPHIA (May 2012) â€“ Childrenâ€™s Surgical Associates, Ltd. (CSA) in Philadelphia recently tapped Citrin Cooperman Partner James A.J. Revels, CPA, MST, to present a two-part financial wellness â€ślunch and learnâ€ť series to the practiceâ€™s physicians and staff members. Revels, a Philadelphia certified public accountant, presented the financial health series at The Childrenâ€™s Hospital of Pennsylvania (CHOP) as part of the CSA Wellness Program, a comprehensive program for CSA physicians and employees geared toward providing resources for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
The process began by CSA polling the employee population to see what areas of financial wellness they were most interested in learning. There were over 40 topics available across a broad spectrum of financial preparedness including cash management, financial planning, investments, estate planning, insurance, education funding and tax planning. Two separate sessions were tailored using the employeeâ€™s most popular selections.
The first portion of the interactive financial health series included topics such as tracking expenses, financial preparedness, how to reduce spending, savings strategies, and understanding the use of cash versus debt. In part two of the series, Revels focused on home and vehicle acquisition, including conducting a personal financial check-up, purchasing versus leasing, financing, debt load and other considerations. He answered questions throughout the sessions and provided attendees with tax planning guides. His â€śFinancial Wellnessâ€ť presentation will be offered on CSAâ€™s intranet for those who were unable to attend.
