Worksite Wellness Resources

Worksite wellness refers to an organized program or activities that a worksite may offer to promote healthy lifestyles (e.g., healthy eating, being physically active, managing stress, quitting tobacco) to employees and their families.  Worksite wellness programs are designed to enrich an employee's physical, mental, emotional, and occupational well-being.  Email Pam Geis from the Wisconsin Diabetes Prevention and Control Program for more information and resources.
