"Health Links™ launched the second Healthy Business Accelerator to award employers up to $1,000 for capital workplace health and safety improvements. We received 15 submissions from representative businesses across the mountain region for projects ranging from improving breastfeeding accommodations to purchasing new safety equipment. Funding was made possible by Eagle County Public Health and Environment through a grant program awarded by the State Health Department. The grant supports efforts to improve chronic disease in Economic Develop Region 12 (Pitkin, Eagle, Summit, Grand, and Jackson Counties).
Join Health Links™ as we celebrate and recognize businesses, nonprofits, and community partners creating healthy, safe workplaces in Colorado. This event is an opportunity to network with other like-minded organizations, share best practices, and connect with local vendors. We are excited to present an all-star line-up including business executives, health and wellness leaders, and public health professionals. If you are, or want to be, part of creating health, safe workplaces, you won't want to miss this. This year, over 300 people will be gathered at the CU South Campus in Parker, Colorado to celebrate the culture of health we’re striving to spread across the state.
