A local health system is an award winner.
A program at Freeman Health System called WellBalance has earned the 2018 Nation’s Best and Brightest in Wellness Award from the National Association for Business Resources. It honors companies that promote employee well-being, worksite health and wellness. Wellness coordinator’s for Freeman Health System say it’s very fitting the award went to Freeman for wellness efforts during the past year.
“Our WellBalance Program interestingly is 20 years old this year, in 2019, so we have definitely seen a change in our program, we’ve moved more from wellness to well being and so receiving this award this year as we celebrate our 20th birthday is just really exciting,” says Kris Drake, RN, Wellness Director, Freeman Health System.
The Freeman program provides opportunities for employees to address areas of wellness including emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, physical, social and spiritual.
