Free Training: Connect to Wellness

Impact Brief June 2021

NACDD is pleased to inform you about an exciting opportunity for health departments looking to build long-term relationships with employers and reduce the burden of chronic disease among their employees. Free training and technical assistance on evidence-based workplace health program is now available to state and local health departments nationwide. Support health department workforce development while assisting local employers.

Connect to Wellness was developed to increase adoption of evidence-based health promotion practices in the workplace. It provides employers with tailored recommendations and intervention support via health department staff trained to work directly with local worksites on healthy eating, physical activity, tobacco cessation, and cancer screening. Additional resources focus on up-to-date materials to support employers with COVID response, including comprehensive vaccine education, and stress reduction. The approach has been proven successful in multiple studies.

The Connect to Wellness project is free to employers, and all training, technical assistance, and program materials are free to health department staff as well. As of April 2021, two cohorts of health departments have been trained and are actively working with local employers.
