Cayuga Community Health Network Kicks Off Worksite Wellness Effort for Cayuga County Employers
In July, Cayuga Community Health Network (CCHN), a partner of HealtheConnections' Population Health Improvement Program and Local IMPACT work, held an event for Cayuga County employers to promote the various ways that CCHN can help employers make program, policy, system, and environmental changes to their worksites. Examples of services that CCHN offers include:
  • Assessment of cafeterias, break rooms, and vending machines
  • Consultation on adopting nutrition standards and promoting physical activity
  • Providing evidence-based National Diabetes Prevention Program and Chronic Disease Self-Management Program classes on site
HealtheConnections, along with our partners in Cayuga, Cortland, Herkimer, Oneida, Onondaga, and Oswego counties are improving the health of employees across the region through Local Initiatives for Multi-Sector Public Health Action (Local IMPACT) grant activities. The purpose of Local IMPACT is to support these high-need counties to implement intensive, location-specific strategies in community and health system settings to prevent obesity, and prevent and control diabetes, heart disease and stroke, with a focus on reducing health disparities among adults. For more information on these and other Local IMPACT efforts, contact Bruce Hathaway, Senior Program Manager, at bhathaway@healtheconnections.org.
