BAY HEALTHY STAYS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Bay Healthy continues to gain traction in its push to improve health in the Bay Area. The initiative will be featured at the San Francisco Business Times Health & Benefits Innovations Forum on Oct. 2 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Bay Area Council Economic Institute President Dr. Micah Weinberg will participate on a panel with other industry experts discussing how traditional healthcare and insurance models are changing as a result of innovative technology and an increased focus on personalized care. The panelists will examine some of the most innovative programs coming out of the Bay Area – including the Bay Healthy wellness campaign. Learn more about the event and register to attend.
Developed in partnership with the Business Times and presented by Sutter Health, Bay Healthy is leveraging the strength of the region’s employer community to make a meaningful impact on the health of the Bay Area. The initiative is encouraging individuals throughout the Bay Area to pledge One Thing – any small action or behavior towards improving their health. The online platform enables businesses to promote and reinforce workplace wellness programs already in place. In fact, the Bay Healthy website is so engaging and user friendly that it won a Silver W3 award this week. Check out the site and get #BayHealthy today!
