The Finger Lakes Regional Worksite Wellness Committee was established from the completion of the Community Health Assessments and Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIP). All of the Network counties included some type of worksite wellness initiatives in their CHIPs. The committee strives to coordinate efforts between counties to create a central resource for worksite wellness initiatives.
Create healthy communities by supporting healthy workplaces in the Finger Lakes.
The Finger Lakes Worksite Wellness Committee is established to:
· Increase awareness of the benefits of workplace wellness programs
· Provide education and support for health promotion in the workplace

Chronic Disease Self Management Program (CDSMP) - The Living Healthy Task Force offers the people in our community living with chronic disease the opportunity to participate in an evidence-based program where mutual support and disease-specific education aid participants in better management of their health. Topics such as nutrition, exercise, appropriate use of medication, and evaluating new treatments help participants to lead more fulfilling and active lives.
National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) - Through a grant from the Greater Rochester Health Foundation, Public Health staff in each of the S2AY Network counties have been trained in the NDPP. NDPP is an evidence-based lifestyle change program for preventing type 2 diabetes. Contact your the S2AY Rural Health Network today to learn more about the program and the possibility of bringing a class to your community or workplace!
