The Wellness Committee has been around for several years and is made up of representatives from various departments. The committee meets every other month in the Cooperative Extension Building.
The goal of the committee is to promote health and fitness among our county employees. Healthier employees make for more productive employees. Becoming healthier and fit decreases insurance claims and time away from work, which is good for the County and especially good for the individual employee. For more information contact Olivia Jones 232-2261 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
