PCC Wellness Program
The Mission of the Wellness Program is:
- To Provide Wellness opportunities for employees and
- To Promote a Worksite Culture that supports the employee's desire to develop healthier lifestyles.
This will be accomplished through encouraging & supporting the adoption of habits and attitudes that contribute to their positive well-being by incorporating the methods and concepts of the Eat Smart, Move More, Quit Now Method (State Employee Health Plan); And other great research-based entities.
Our mission is conducted on the premise that it is important that the worksite be a healthy place to work with readily available facilities that will enable a healthy lifestyle.
The Wellness Program Theme is:
"Stepping Out to Pursuing a Healthy Lifestyle." The background understanding for our current theme stems from the fact that current research-based County, State and National trends suggest that a large percentage of our population are not as physically active on average as compared to the current recommendations for health benefits. Nor, are we, as a County, State and Nation, on average consuming healthful amounts of fruit and vegetable servings based on current data.
Hence, comes the thematic statement: "Stepping Out" (from the norm) to intentionally Pursue, a Healthier Lifestyle.
It is our mission and our hope that we, together, as a Campus Community, can provide Wellness opportunities for our Faculty/Staff and promote a worksite culture that encourages and supports our employee's desire to pursue and develop healthier lifestyles.
