Communities take pride in their local schools, and they also have a vested interest in the health and wellness of students on school campuses. Communities are composed of businesses and organizations that hire employees, so raising a future healthy workforce is key to boosting productivity and reducing absenteeism, thereby reducing the expense to an organization.
Champions For Heath is engaging community partners by reaching out to those who want to support this pilot initiative. We have an outstanding advisory committee dedicated to helping us develop a successful model in Morrilton so we can bring this program to communities statewide. We will also be offering wellness sessions to the employees of major sponsors.
