Georgia. Working on Health.
In 2016 the Georgia Department of Public Health developed a new initiative promoting a healthier workforce, improving public health programs and promoting self-management of chronic conditions. Among worksites the Chronic Disease Prevention team seeks to develop a wellness network, encourage worksites to pledge to adopt and implement policies, and partner with health care extenders to provide screenings and referrals in worksites.
By “taking the pledge” online to promote physical activity, create a healthy eating environment, support breastfeeding, and/or become tobacco free, worksites become a part of the Georgia. Working on Health network and receive window clings, the Work Healthy Georgia Toolkit, and ongoing resources to assist in creating programs and policies. Take the pledge and help us create an environment that supports healthy habits to create a healthier workforce and a healthier Georgia.
