    St. Lucie County Focuses on Fitness

    Read More

    The St. Lucie County Board of County Commissioners can count more than 1,200 reasons why its new Wellness Program is working. About halfway through the 12-week Weight-Loss Challenge to kick off the county’s new Wellness Initiative, more than 300 participants have lost more than 1,200 pounds.

    In an effort to help reduce health-care costs and encourage its workforce to become more health conscious, St. Lucie County developed a new Wellness Matters initiative that provides financial incentives to employees that show they are working to improve their physical well-being.

    “We have made it very simple so anyone can do it,” explained George Landry, St. Lucie County’s Safety & Risk Manager. “We didn’t want to create a bunch of rules to discourage people from using the program. Some of the rewards can be obtained just by self-reported results.”

    You won’t want to miss FAC’s 2015 Annual Conference, June 16-19 at the Sawgrass Marriott in St. Johns County. Our theme for this year's Conference is "Diversity Brings Us Together" and the Opening General Session on Wednesday, June 17  will focus on the diversity that is Florida and ways that our differences are also our strengths.

    The keynote speaker will be Chef Jeff Henderson.  Award-winning chef and author of the New York Times best-seller Cooked, Chef Jeff Henderson discovered his passion and gift for cooking in a most unlikely place -- behind bars. The creator of the Food Network's reality series The Chef Jeff Project and the host of Family Style with Chef Jeff, he is one of the most influential African-American chefs in the country. He uses his redemptive journey--from drug dealer to TV celebrity chef to nationally acclaimed motivational speaker--to help others reboot their own dreams and gain a new foothold on the ladder to success.
