Purpose
North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) President Kenneth Edge asked
the association to "live healthy by choice, not by chance” in his inaugural speech last August. Among other important initiatives, he strived to bring greater awareness to the increasing healthcare costs for county employees across North Carolina. A healthy living task force was appointed to study wellness programs and strategies for improving health behaviors and outcomes for county employees. Public health directors, wellness program coordinators, county commissioners and other pertinent county staff have rallied together to identify best practices in the area of worksite wellness to provide tools for all counties to become healthier.
