your wellness is our mission!
ADDRESSING NEEDS (Clinical Interventions)
Once your agency’s Screenings and Assessments are completed and analyzed, they can be utilized to customize a Worksite Wellness Program specifically targeting the unique needs of your personnel. While Ongoing Support and Education will be the key to a sustainable Worksite Wellness Program, Addressing Needs identified by your screenings can actually “jump-start” your employees’ progress on the road to good health. Our interventions are provided by qualified professionals (Diabetes Educators and Health Educators) utilizing the evidence based programs summarized below.
Potential Clinical Interventions Include
CPR & First Aid
