Wellness Champions

Health Champion Designees

Building Better Companies, Organizations and Communities

Engaging people in healthy living and encouraging healthful habits is no easy task, but the rewards are great—happy and healthy workforces, memberships and communities that are more productive and connected.

It's precisely why the American Diabetes Association launched Wellness Lives Here™, an initiative designed to inspire and fuel our nation's healthful habits at work and beyond. As part of that initiative, the Health Champion Designation recognizes companies, organizations and communities that make health and wellness a priority for their employees, members and community groups.

The following have met the designation's healthy living criteria in three different areas: Nutrition and Weight Management, Physical Activity, and Organizational Well-Being and are officially recognized as Health Champions by the American Diabetes Association. Designees that participate in Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes® and/or Tour de Cure® receive the Health Champion Elite Designation.

Congratulations, Health Champions!
