Business for Health: Fostering Healthy Workplaces
On January 7, 2014 the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Vitality Institute, hosted an event titled “Business for Health: Fostering Healthy Workplaces” in Denver, Colorado. This was the second in a series taking place across the U.S. during spring 2014 to organize a collective voice of prevention in the context of the Vitality Institute’s Commission on Health Promotion and the Prevention of Chronic Disease in Working Age Americans.
We want to hear from you! Join the conversation @VitalityInst or @DenChamber, or view the webcast of the event here: http://www.liveeventstream.com/vitalityforumdenver/
