Yuma County is the first government agency to qualify for an award under the state’s Healthy Arizona Worksites program, which will be presented later this month.
About the Healthy Arizona Worksites Program
The Healthy Arizona Worksites Program (HAWP) is a public health initiative that has been developed through a partnership between the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Maricopa County Department of Public Health. This statewide program provides Arizona employers with training, technical assistance, tools, and resources to design, implement, and evaluate worksite wellness initiatives. HAWP also works to create linkages between Arizona businesses engaging in healthy worksite efforts so they can learn from each other and share experiences.
