Find Your Balance. national employee health & fitness day may 15Put on your walking shoes and join your friends and colleagues for a walk on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, as DHSS celebrates National Employee Health and Fitness Day (NEHFD) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.!

All state employees are encouraged to come out on May 15 and “Find Your Balance”. A healthy lifestyle is more important than ever as more of our health care dollars are being spent on diseases that are largely a result of inactive and stressful lifestyles, and unhealthy eating habits.

For all state employees, the Worksite Wellness Committee encourages you to take a walk, be active, get some fresh air and reduce your stress levels. Plus you will be eligible to win prizes! The registration forms for the Greenway and the State Health Lab in Jefferson City and the out-state registration form for employees outside the Jefferson City area are listed below.

If there is no registration table at your location, mail your registration to Susan Demsko, 920 Wildwood, P.O. Box 570, Jefferson City, MO 65102-0570 by May 28, 2019 to be entered in a random drawing.

Prize winners will be notified by e-mail by June 10, 2019.
