Wellness at Wood County

What is Wellness?

Worksite Wellness can be defined as "an organized program in the worksite that is intended to assist employees and their family members in making voluntary behavior changes that reduce their health risk and enhance their individual productivity and well-being."

Wellness is an active, lifelong process of becoming aware of choices and making decisions toward a more balanced and fulfilling life. This process can lead to a healthier state of well-being that allows individuals and communities to thrive.

The 2016-2017 Wood County Wellness Program welcomes you to use your new personal online wellness portal! Click here to access: Wellness Portal

This website will replace the previous way you tracked wellness activities. It features valuable health programs and tools as well as a central location for storing and tracking your wellness efforts. For example: scheduling your biometric appointments, coaching appointment and a NEW online health assessment.
