Over the past year, the American Diabetes Association and Wellcom have partnered to enhance the well-being of local corporate cultures. Utilizing the Wellness Lives Here program (a free corporate wellness program created by the Association), we have been able to share resources to current Wellcom members including diabetes education, workplace wellness challenges and the promotion of the “Health Champion Designation Award”. The criteria for this award includes nutrition and weight management, physical activity and organizational well-being. Those companies awarded this recognition receive a promotional e-toolkit to promote internally and externally, logos to utilize for recruitment and website use and recognition on the Association’s website. They also have access to additional resources and materials. Recipients were awarded their Health Champion Designation plaque at the “Excellence in Worksite Wellness Awards, Presented by Wellcom” in Omaha on November 7, 2017. We continue to assist the awarded companies with their wellness programs as needed.
