National Healthy Worksite Program Kicking Off in Memphis in May!

UPDATE: FIRST TRAINING ANNOUNCED

Register NOW to attend the June 6 "Healthy Worksite 101" training provided by the National Healthy Worksite Program here in Memphis. The topic is "Making the Business Case for Worksite Wellness" . Space is filling up fast.

RSVP with Mary Cay Oyler at mcoyler@viridianhealth.com. Any employer in the greater Memphis area is invited to trainings and you do not have to be one of the selected program participants to attend!

Overview

As the CDC's National Healthy Worksite Program gets underway, it is becoming even clearer what a great opportunity employers in Shelby County and neighboring areas have as one of the 7 selected communities nationally!

I just participated in a national webinar that outlined the training and technical assistance opportunities available to the 7 selected communities and to employers nationally. There are 4 levels of participation. Here are the highlights:

Program Participants: Up to 15 employers in Shelby County will be selected to receive intensive on-site support to build comprehensive and sustainable worksite health programs and will participate in the Worksite Health 101 trainings and community roundtable meetings.

Community Participants: Employers not selected as Program Participants in Shelby County AND our neighboring areas, as well as organizations that support employers (such as MBGH), can participate in 4 very detailed Worksite Health 101 trainings and in community roundtable meetings along with the Program Participants.

National Participants: Employers, and organizations that support employers, not in one of the 7 selected communities can participate in Worksite Health 101 quarterly webinars, starting June 18.

All Participants: All 3 groups above are invited to participate in quarterly special interest topics, designed to compliment the Worksite Health 101 webinars, which will start in July.

MBGH will keep you up-to-date on local and national opportunities. You are also encouraged to register with the National Healthy Worksite Program to receive their email notices of webinars and trainings. You can do that here. Registration and the link are in the first "Featured" item. Also, please email Mary Cay Oyler (mcoyler@viridianhealth.com), Shelby County's coordinator, so she can contact your directly about local opportunities.

For those of you that applied to be a Program Participant, you should have received a letter acknowledging your application and you will soon be receiving a call to schedule your interview.

Let MBGH know how we can help you connect to this very important local resource.
