The purpose of the Westminster Employee Wellness Program is to raise awareness among employees about the importance of lifestyle behaviors that promote good health and encourage overall wellness which includes physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and social wellness.

How to Participate in the Westminster Employee Wellness Program
