2015 Working Well Spring Meeting Recap

On April 29, representatives from hospitals, state agencies, and businesses from across South Carolina gathered at SCHA’s William L. Yates Conference Center for the inaugural Working Well Spring Meeting. The meeting was a huge success and many thanks go out to our speakers, meeting attendees, and the conference center for hosting the event.

The training sessions featured a variety of speakers representing organizations of different sizes and from many sectors. Educational seminars were provided on a variety of engaging and relevant topics. The speakers and session topics included:

  • Tara Ponder from AnMed Health, Elizabeth Keating from Hospice of the Upstate, and Aloysius Anderson from SC Department of Juvenile Justice tag-teamed a presentation on “Building Financial Capacity for Wellness” with advice on building your organization’s wellness budget.
  • Sue Odom, a tax and employee benefits attorney with Nexsen Pruet, spoke on “Legal Considerations for Wellness Programs,” a very timely topic considering the EEOC’s recent release of their new proposed regulations. Ms. Odom’s presentation focused on how federal regulations like HIPAA, GINA, ADA, and ACA impact wellness programs.
  • Renee Shore, manager of EAP and wellness services at Tidelands Health, presented a case study of best practices for incentive-based wellness program design called “Designing Wellness Incentives”.

The complete PowerPoint presentations from the meeting can be found here on SCHA’s web site. If you have any questions or would like additional information regarding Working Well, please contact Stephanie Hudson, Working Well Business Manager, at 803.744.3531.
