    What is a Wellness Program?

    A program intended to improve and promote health and fitness that's usually offered through the work place, although insurance plans can offer them directly to their enrollees. The program allows your employer or plan to offer you premium discounts, cash rewards, gym memberships, and other incentives to participate. Some examples of wellness programs include programs to help you stop smoking, diabetes management programs, weight loss programs, and preventative health screenings.

    This meeting will feature a panel of employers who have implemented Wellness Programs.  Each employer will explain what prompted their organization to implement a wellness program and the first steps they took to accomplish their goal. In addition, there will be a facilitated discussion, allowing audience members to ask questions.  The purpose of this meeting is to provide human resource professionals for ideas of how to start a wellness program within their own organizations.
