Virtual Worksite Wellness Symposium On The Schedule

The American Heart Association and its local Healthy for Good Sponsors Adventist Health Lodi Memorial and Dameron Hospital are working together to improve the health and wellness of the local workforce.

Almost every organization has faced a transition during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it has taken a toll on the health and wellness of employees. The American Heart Association and Adventist Health invite local employers to attend a free virtual Worksite Wellness Symposium on Zoom to learn new skills and resources to elevate the health of employees, reduce absenteeism, and improve a company’s bottom line.

Attendees will have the opportunity to:

• Hear from local employers at different stages of improving their workforce wellness implementation;

• Learn proven methods to support health at work from local experts;

• Have the opportunity to network with industry leaders;

• Leave having taken steps to achieve measurable outcomes to track progress.

The event is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 21 from 10:30 a.m. to noon.
