    Location: Public Health Solutions 

    995 E Hwy 33, Ste. 1 

    Join us for our August Lunch & Learn over Leading Wellness 101. Employees spend more awake hours at work than any other place. Companies are experiencing double-digit health care cost increases as diabetes and heart disease plague America’s working class. Worksite health programs have consistently demonstrated a positive return on investment. Employers with active wellness programs experience happier and healthier employees, increased production, and retain talented employees. The average return on investment is 5:1. Leading Wellness 101 is an excellent course for teaching anyone the importance of worksite wellness, the evidenced based model, and the rules and regulations that are necessary to support a worksite wellness program.  Each participant will walk away with a skeleton plan, knowledge on how to build a foundation for wellness in their company, and action steps for reducing the impact of diabetes on their organizations.

    Free to public. To register, contact the Crete Chamber at 402-826-2136 or via email at office.cretechamber@gmail.com. Registration concludes on Monday, August 27th at noon.
