Worksite Wellness Brings Together Residents and Local Businesses

Worksite Wellness Brings Together Residents and Local Businesses

Ministry Health Care is connecting Stevens Point residents and local businesses with nationallyrecognized and highly sought-after keynote presenters though a worksite wellness summit and free community wellness event held to address the priority health needs in our community through education and training.

The day-time summit, which was held in April 2015 and attended by 140 professionals from all over Wisconsin, provided sessions designed to educate and motivate individuals whose work includes improving the health and lives of clients, associates and communities. In addition to national and state experts, Ministry Health Care staff also appeared on the presenter lineup to highlight our programs and services.

Approximately 120 community members attended the free evening program, which included a healthy cooking demo provided by the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Dietetics Program, an exercise session provided by the Stevens Point Area YMCA, and “Weigh Less for Life,” a presentation from Dr. Ann Kulze, an expert in the areas of nutrition, healthy lifestyles and disease prevention.

The event brought professionals and community members together for a day to help advance them in their profession and realize their personal goals through inspiring presentations and networking experiences. Partnerships with the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, Portage County Health Department, Portage County CAN and the National Wellness Institute Inc., also serve as an opportunity to bridge gaps in the community and highlight the work of our groups to enhance health and wellness.

“Participants were motivated and entertained, but most importantly, they walked away with take-action-today inspiration and strategies for lasting weight control and good health,” states Derek Bell, program coordinator and occupational safety and wellness consultant with Employer Solutions, Ministry Health Care.
