Workplace Wellness

• To create a healthy and more productive work force. To increase productivity, to reduce absenteeism, better manage health care costs.

Community Connections

• To connect Crow Wing County residents with services, events, organizations and resources that promote healthy living. To increase awareness on available services, programs and events in the county, promote Crow Wing Energized and other programs and events in the county.
