Why is CHBC important to you? 

Working in health and wellness for years I saw the true benefits of a healthy workplace thru the attitude of the employees. If you feel good you perform better. Making the workplace a healthier and friendlier experience is a benefit well worth the effort that creates teamwork and reduces barriers. And in the Charleston area we have many best practices of success stories waiting to be told! This has been a learning, rewarding experience.
