Making the Grade in Worksite Wellness Conference

In 2008, the state mandated that all universities and community colleges implement a worksite (employee) wellness program with the focus areas of healthy eating, physical activity, stress management and tobacco cessation.


The University of NC at Greensboro and HealthyUNCG invited fellow North Carolina universities and community colleges for a one day workshop to identify resources, set goals and discuss strategies, successes and barriers to making our respective campus bodies one that is healthy and well. The workshop was held on September 22nd from 10am-4:00pm at UNCG in the Elliot University Center. Nine different schools were represented at the workshop. HealthyUNCG would like to thank everyone who attended and we look forward to collaborating with all the different NC schools to build a healthier workforce!
