GMSS is proud to have been named a Gold Level partner in the Vermont Department of Health’s 3-4-50 Worksite Wellness program. The 3-4-50 campaign encourages us to target the three behaviors (Lack of Physical Activity, Poor Diet, and Tobacco Use) that lead to the four diseases (Cancer, Heart Disease and Stroke, Type 2 Diabetes, and Lung Disease) that result in more than 50% of deaths in Vermont each year.
Did you know that more than 60% of Vermont workers are either overweight or obese, and that over half have at least one chronic health condition? GMSS understands that good health habits lead not just to longer lives, but to better lives – filled with personal and professional achievement, and greater happiness – so we want to support you to meet your personal wellness goals, whatever they may be.
If you want help getting started toward a healthier you, you can contact your physician and/or Invest EAP, or talk to any member of the Wellness Committee, which includes Danielle Tinker, Fawn Lanpher, Christina Bell, Janet Germaine, and Elizabeth Walters. If you have an idea for a new activity or resource GMSS could provide, please also suggest that to any of us. To your wellness!
