Dysart Schools Honored for Wellness
The Dysart Unified School District was recently recognized by Wellness Council of Arizona for efforts in workplace and employee health and wellness at the annual meeting in Tucson, Arizona on August 24, 2023.
Dysart was presented with the Wellness Council of Arizona’s Official Gold Seal of Good Health Keeping Renewal Award. The renewal shows the district’s continued focus on employee health through an established relationship between the wellness program and health plan engagement with components such as incentives for annual exams, local produce baskets, financial wellness, health coaching, and screenings among other things. Dysart also earned second place in the Stride Through Spring Corporate Activity Step Challenge. Team Dysart consisted of 69 staff members who competed in the four week challenge last April and walked an impressive 23,057,819 steps as a group.
Dr. Catherine Maynard, School Psychologist, was awarded the Personal Achievement award which recognizes an individual who has made great strides in health improvement and lifestyle. Additionally, Dysart’s Benefits and Wellness Manager, Janis Peel, received the Champion of Worksite Wellness Senior Leadership award for her dedication in providing wellness opportunities for Dysart employees.
The Wellness Council of Arizona strives to be the recognized leader and resource for worksite health promotion in Arizona and collaborates with healthcare providers, community leaders, businesses and institutions to improve the health of employees and their families.
