Let’s focus on water. Its benefits are innumerable, as long as it’s clean and safe. That’s the goal of Governor DeWine’s H2Ohio water quality initiative. The initiative is part of the governor’s budget and seeks to invest in long-term solutions to ensure safe and clean water across Ohio.
Clean, safe water is such an important part of our overall health that it’s one of the areas we encourage Ohioans to focus on when they join Better You, Better Ohio!™, our health and wellness program for Ohio’s workforce.
The free program offers health and wellness coaching and other resources for employees of businesses that have 150 or fewer workers. Healthy employees are less prone to injury. And, when they are injured, they’re usually able to recover more quickly.
You can learn more about the program and register here. If you’re eligible, you’ll have access to:
- Free health assessment and biometric screening.
- Disease management and health coaching.
- Monetary incentives for participating and more!
ActiveHealth Management – our partner in offering the Better You, Better Ohio! program – also has many free health and wellness resources available to anyone. This includes items like a monthly newsletter and webinars covering a variety of health and wellness topics, including the importance of H2O.
The fact sheet below covers the benefits of H2O, how much you need and tips for drinking enough every day.
Better health – it starts straight from the tap.
