Global Employee Health and Fitness Month (GEHF)

 The Global Employee Health and Fitness Month is another opportunity to promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle to employers and their employees through workplace health and wellness initiatives and promotion activities. Formerly National Employee Health & Fitness Day, Global Employee Health & Fitness Month has been extended to a month-long initiative in an effort to generate sustainability for a healthy lifestyle and initiate healthy activities on an ongoing basis. Past NEHFD activities have included offering SRWC guest passes at no charge to Washburn employees who are not current members, lunchtime lectures covering a variety of healthy topics, poker walks, and a scavenger hunt.
