PFCD sponsors National Employee Wellness Month

The Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease (PFCD) will sponsor the 4th Annual National Employee Wellness Month this June. The initiative is aimed at providing business leaders with new ideas and proven strategies around employee wellness and prevention.

“At the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease, we know that creating healthier opportunities in the workplace is a critical component to preventing and better managing chronic disease, which is why this week we announced our sponsorship of this year’s event,” said Ken Thorpe, Executive Director of PFCD. Other sponsors include Virgin HealthMiles, the STOP Obesity Alliance and WorldatWork.

“Workplaces have the opportunity, motive and capability to create a desire for improved personal health through carefully designed, supportive wellness programs, which can lower absenteeism and reduce medical costs,” said Thorpe. “National Employee Wellness Month provides a great opportunity to raise awareness about the critical role workplaces must play in positively affecting employee health.”
