Practice Wellness – Piedmont Health Services Inc

Piedmont Health Services is inviting all 41 Community Health Centers, as well as, the North Carolina Community Health Center Association (NCCHCA) to participate in a movement.

NCMS Plan client, Piedmont Health Services (PHS) is constantly finding new opportunities for employees to engage and lead a healthier lifestyle. The PHS Wellness team believes being healthy is a choice, and the more opportunities employees have to become healthier, the more likely they’ll adopt a healthier lifestyle.

In keeping with Piedmont Health Services wellness theme of “Mind, Body and Spirit”, on Friday, August 4, 2017, PHS officially kicked off its wellness initiative at the Administrative Offices with the “Wobble” line dance. Members of the Administrative team and other staff wobbled in conjunction with the Tom Joyner Morning Show (TJMS). The show plays the wobble at the top of the 8:00 hour every Friday morning. The purpose of this event was three-fold: 1) studies have shown that there are direct health benefits of line dances such as the “Wobble” created in 2008, 2) the social aspects of line dancing are numerous as a sense of well-being and the camaraderie that participants have with one another also positively impacts health; and, 3) the event was inspired by the TJMS and encourages movement as part of their wellness. TJMS is nationally syndicated in 132 markets across the country and Mr. Joyner gave Piedmont Health several “shout-outs” both prior to and as the wobble played. Moreover, he lauded the company for using this opportunity to promote wellness.

On Friday, October 20, 2017, PHS will Wobble once again — so much fun! It promoted movement, comradery and inspiration! We want all of you to join us. What better way to let your patients know that you care about the health of your staff? And, you may get to hear the name of your community health center shouted out during the TJMS broadcast.
