Join us for Worksite Wellness Summit – West!

April 6, 2017 Rhonda Ubben

By popular demand, we've expanded the BCBSND Worksite Wellness Summit to the west. Join us May 4 in Bismarck for the third annual Summit– West —a day devoted to developing a culture of wellness at your workplace

Who should attend?
Anyone can make a difference in the health and wellness of their office. In fact, many successful worksite wellness programs begin with employees, not employers. No matter your role in the organization, you'll get tips, insights and motivation on how to help your co-workers at the Worksite Wellness Summit – West.

Plan to attend if you are:

  • Interested in worksite wellness programs
  • A human resource professional
  • A business owner or manager
  • A health care or wellness professional

With all new speakers and topics, our west-based summit offers a unique experience whether you've attended before or not.

Keynote speakers
The Worksite Wellness Summit – West will offer two inspiring speakers with insights on how to motivate your team and yourself for a healthier workplace.

Laura Putnam, MA, is an author as well as the CEO and co-founder of Motion Infusion with a mission to get organizations "in motion." Laura will bring her extensive experience to two lively and informative keynotes:

  • Workplace Wellness That Works: 10 Steps to Bring Vitality and Well-Being to Any Organization
  • The Engagement Imperative: From Carrots and Sticks to Creating Meaning

Melanie Carvell, PT, is a certified Worksite Wellness consultant, accomplished triathlete and author of Running with the Antelope: Life, Fitness, and Grit on the Northern Plans. Melanie brings insights on how to promote change in others as well as yourself with:

  • It Starts with "Why" – Charting Your Path to Sustainable Healthy Habits

Conference details
The North Dakota Worksite Wellness Summit – West, will be held Thursday, May 4 from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Bismarck State College National Energy Center of Excellence.
