 " In a small nonprofit, worksite wellness-- like personal wellness-- is all too often placed on the "back burner" as we scramble to keep us with our day- to day  projects and responsibilities. Being a part of the Worksite Wellness Collaborative created the space for our organization to consider  the health of our employees and visitor and how our workplace is having a positive or negative impact on wellness or no impact at all.  Katie Marshall, Executive Director- MacRostie Art Center

"The experience for our company was a good one. We Found that one- size fits- all philosophy with regard to wellness doesn't really work. By participating in this program we found that there are many ways to incorporate wellness regardless of the age of our team. We feel that the program motivated us to keep moving forward."
