COUNTY EMPLOYEES' WELLNESS PROGRAMS

A Wellness Committee is being formed to implement several health programs for Potter County employees.

One is the Lifestyle Returns program from Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield. Another is the Biggest Loser Contest, where Potter County will compete with other counties in losing the most percentage of body weight.

The 10,000-Step Challenge is a 12-week pedometer program to help increase physical activity, endurance and improve overall health. Coaching on nutrition and stress relief will be offered to employees.

These initiatives are meant to improve health and well-being, keep participants on track, create a more productive workforce, build morale, and have fun in the process.
