Nov. 27: Working on Wellness Program Is Launched


Working on Wellness (WoW) was officially launched in the NWT. The initiative is designed to help employers support their employees in making healthy lifestyle choices and to reduce preventable cancers and other chronic diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Five NWT sites have signed on to pilot the program in their workplaces. Participating worksites have undergone an assessment and, based on employee interests, will provide support to employees in areas such as increasing physical activity, improving healthy eating or speaking about mental health in the workplace.
