The City of Douglasville continues to prove why they are one of Atlanta’s Healthiest Employers! On May 23rd, The City held its annual employee health fair with this year’s theme being Casino Royale: Don’t Gamble with Your Health. It was to say the least, a huge success!
The City’s Wellness Committee did a truly phenomenal job creating an event that provided fun and interactive atmosphere for their employees to learn more about important health topics and meet local health providers in their community. More importantly, employees were able to have important health screenings to check high blood pressure and cholesterol, and diabetes. Each employee that participated in the health screenings received a $50 gift card.
ShawHankins assisted the City by contacting the health providers in the community to participate in the health fair. Employees were provided information on vision screenings, cancer prevention, chiropractic care, financial wellness, legal access, diabetes, stroke prevention, healthy eating, and dental hygiene. And in the event they needed some stress relief, massage therapist were onsite to provide chair massages.
The Wellness Committee dressed in casino attire and decorated the convention center to mimic a true casino experience. Employees were able to play black jack, shoot craps, and play roulette-all with fake money that they received when they visited a vendor’s booth. The city had a wide array of door prizes to be raffled at the end of the day and vendors also provided door prizes for employees to win.
Kudos to the City of Douglasville for once again proving why they are one of Atlanta’s Healthiest Employers!
