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 Community Foundation, the Wichita Business Coalition on Health Care, and WorkWell KS to provide resources that will help Kansas worksites assess and improve their current practices regarding wellness.
The centerpiece of these trainings and resources centers on an online worksite wellness assessment, developed by KUSM-W and KDHE, that can serve as the beginning point for businesses interested in improving their overall worksite wellness. All interested businesses are encouraged to complete the assessment.
In addition to the assessment, a series of worksite wellness webinars are being offered by KDHE and KUSM-W to all interested employers throughout the state. All webinars will begin at 11:00 AM (CST) and will last one hour. Participants will need to register in order to take part in the webinars.
Businesses that participate in the WorkWell Kansas Champions program are being offered live one and a half day workshops held in participating communities throughout the state. WorkWell Kansas Champions are businesses and organizations form communities across the state that are committed to improving worksite wellness.
Businesses that are interested in becoming a Champion and bringing these trainings to their communities, or business who live in the communities already taking part in the WorkWell Kansas program who would like to attend one of the already scheduled trainings should contact WorkWell KS.
