Wellness programs in the workplace are the subject of a series of sessions being offered by the Health and Wellness Coalition, Sedgwick County Health Promotion Department and the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce.
The six sessions planned are called the Worksite Wellness Think Tank.
“What we are seeing in businesses is that health care costs are outrageous and something to get under control,” said Debbie Williams, Healthy Community director for the Greater Wichita YMCA and the coalition.
“With the new health care laws in fruition, there are a lot more businesses being engaged and who want to look more at wellness programs.”
This is the first time the think tank has been offered, Williams said.
Sessions will focus on different aspects of developing or enhancing wellness programs. They will include a speaker and small-group discussions.
The think tank sessions will be held from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Chamber, 350 W. Douglas. The cost is $20 for individual sessions and $60 for the entire series. Sessions are open to anyone.
The topics to be covered and dates for the sessions are:
