In cooperation with surrounding counties, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service-Wise County will present “Building a Healthy Workplace: A How-To Blueprint” Oct. 17 at the Parker County Agricultural Service Center in Weatherford.

Dr. Ninfa Pe a-Purcell, an Extension health specialist who specializes in workplace training programs and has more than 25 years of experience in the field, will share innovative best practices and train attendees on how to design their own custom wellness program.

Potential attendees include employer-based corporate wellness, benefits, and human resources staff, as well as healthcare, insurance and safety/risk management professionals. But anyone interested in worksite wellness may attend. The program includes a comprehensive guidebook, resource materials and a networking lunch.

The purpose of the program is to provide low-cost worksite wellness training that helps organizations tailor the programs to meet their needs and engage employees to produce measurable results.

The programming can help employees make improvements in their physical activity, healthy food consumption, weight loss and blood pressure, all of which can help reduce absences and lower health care costs.

An early bird registration rate is available now. To register for the conference, visit worksitewellness.tamu.edu/ or contact the Extension office at 940-627-3341 for information.

Tanya Davis is a Wise County Extension agent.
