These grants are awarded statewide to promote worksite programs designed to enhance the health and wellness of county employees and family members.
Awards are made to members of the ACCG Group Health Benefits Program (GHBP), underwritten by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia, based on a County's commitment to employee health and demonstrated collaboration with other community groups and organizations engaged in health promotion.
Employees will be offered a confidential health assessment program using a Health Risk Appraisal, with blood pressure screening and health improvement feedback.
Manager Clinton Lester said, "We are pleased that the ACCG recognizes our interest in employee health and in managing health care costs. This grant will help us provide new programs to our staff and their families."
