Corporate Wellness Doesn't Have to be a Drag—Just ask Sharecare
Corporate wellness can be fun—it doesn't have to bore everyone to tears, make them walk 1093048 miles a day, check their pulse at their desk... you know what we mean. Like—lame stuff.
We had the opportunity to take The Fit Atlanta and The Nutrition Addiction to Sharecare at The Shops of Buckhead on Wednesday March 21 to celebrate spring + give a lunch and learn presentation about eating healthy while working a 9-5.
But first—what is Sharecare?
Sharecare is the latest and greatest health app created by the founder of WebMD. Here's the nitty gritty:
Sharecare is the digital health company that helps people manage all their health in one place. The Sharecare platform provides each person – no matter where they are in their health journey – with a comprehensive and personalized health profile, where they can dynamically and easily connect to the information, evidence-based programs and health professionals they need to live their healthiest, happiest and most productive life. With award-winning and innovative frictionless technologies, scientifically validated clinical protocols and best-in-class coaching tools, Sharecare helps providers, employers and health plans effectively scale outcomes-based health and wellness solutions across their entire populations. To learn more, visit www.sharecare.com.
Long story short—it's a really cool, innovating company located right here in the heart of Buckhead, Atlanta and they are revolutionizing the tech side of health + wellness. What makes them even more amazing is they put their value of health into action by providing employees with a "Wellness Wednesday" series. Each Wednesday, Sharecare brings in a local fitness trainer, wellness business, or health professional to lead a workout or give a lunch and learn!
Now that you know about Sharecare, we were honored when they asked The Fit Atlanta to come by for a Wellness Wednesday session.
But because our mission at The Fit Atlanta is centered around collaboration and community, we thought long and hard about who could come with us to give a dope wellness lunch + learn about something corporate 9-5ers could really put into practice.
We chose Megan Kober, Registered Dietitian and founder of The Nutrition Addiction, to accompany us to give a presentation about bad habits that are killing your health goals in the work place, easy recipes for professionals on the go, and after we had an engaging Q+A session where we all discussed blood sugar, sleep habits, protein bars, whole30, and more!
Each attendee got a super cute stadium cup we had made by Paces Lane!
It was a BLAST, guys. So many new friends made, new healthy facts learned, and community growing stronger.
