This October we’re celebrating Employee Wellness Month at Northwest Colorado Health! All month long our employees will have a chance to participate in wellness activities that will be available live and recorded. And for every activity that an employee tracks, they will be entered into a drawing for 5 HUGE prizes! Staff will get bonus points if they submit a photo of their activity or surroundings during a Wellness Activity. We will be uploading the photo submissions on this page daily, so please check back to see everyone’s wellness journey this month. Week 5 – Social Wellness
