The University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita (KUSM-W) is partnering with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), the Kansas Health Foundation, the Wichita Business Coalition on Health Care, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas to create healthier worksites in Kansas through implementation of policies, systems, and environmental best practices.
The centerpiece of WorkWell KS centers on online worksite wellness assessments, developed by KUSM-W and KDHE. These assessments hone in on specific health priorities to give employers an overall picture of best practices they are already implementing, as well as identify opportunities for improvement. Assessments can serve as the beginning point for worksites interested in improving the health of their employees and developing comprehensive worksite wellness plans.
In addition to the assessment and workshops, worksite wellness webinars are offered by KDHE and KUSM-W to all interested employers throughout the state. These webinars cover best practices in Kansas, worksite wellness strategies, and hot topics pertaining to worksite wellness. All webinars are free and participants just need to register.
