Worksite wellness workshop free, online

HONOLULU — The American Heart Association’s popular, annual, free, worksite-wellness workshop will be offered digitally on Tuesday, Nov. 3, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Today, one in three people report being worried, and 53% of U.S. adults say that COVID-19 has negatively impacted their mental well-being due to worry and stress.

The Worksite Wellness Workshop will address those issues and help employers build a culture of wellness in their organizations.

The workshop includes two breakout sessions. One will feature a panel discussion covering topics including building health equity in the workplace, mental health and wellbeing. The second will focus on “Question-Storming: The Art of Asking Better Questions,” described as engaging employees’ feedback in building an effective workplace-wellness program.

Gerald E.Johnson II, American Heart Association executive vice president and health equity and chief diversity officer, will join a keynote discussion on how employers can improve health in their work environments, focusing on the whole employee.

Poor mental well-being is a critical problem that, if neglected, can lead to serious health complications like heart disease, he said.

The statewide event is digital. See to register and receive details about the workshop.
