Art & Science of Building a Wellness Program in A Small Setting
Empowering Your Employees to Take Charge of the Their Health and Manage Their Own Health Care
Think about the last time you were hurt, sick or just not feeling well. You probably found it hard to get things done. Now think about the times when you were at your best. There's a big difference. When people are in good health they are more productive. We can make available a program to help you employees better manage their healthcare. The resources that we will make available will help them to better manage the conditions associated with not feeling well. Introducing Self-Care Essentials, a guide to managing your health care and living well, developed by the Wellness Council of America (WELCOA).
One of the keys to empowering your employees to take charge of their health is "Self-Care". Self-Care is important simply because a big part of our medicial conditions and symptoms can be treated without professional medical assistance. Consider that over 1/3 of all minor medical conditions can be treated without a trip to a healthcare facility. As our nations's healthcare system continues to evolve, making decisions about personal and family health becomes increasingly confusing. But the fact is, it doesn't have to be. Armed with the right information, you and your employees can take command over your health and healthcare.
Eat Right for Life

Participants are challenged to work toward transforming unhealthy eating behaviors into healthy habits that will promote a lifetime of stellar health.
