Wellness Wins: Resources and Tips to Stay Well in the Workplace
Did you know that May is Employee Health and Fitness Month? Join us for a live Wellness Wins webinar focused on tips and resources for staying well in the workplace!
Ashley Rath, DC of Family Roots Chiropractic will share tips for preventing pain, burnout, and other work-related health issues. Plus, learn about other common health issues that are preventable through self-awareness and self-care.
Kelly Tauber, MAS-PH, MHA and Emily Van Hatten, RN of Carris Health will share how regular health screenings (also known as preventive exams) are important components of employee health and wellness. They are the foundation of employee health improvement and help to determine the possible presence of a disease or other health problems. Health care screening combined with integrated wellness programs, health assessments, and health coaching, can help improve overall wellness and reduce overall costs associated with an unhealthy workforce.
The presentation will be followed with a question and answer session.
