Working Well and Prevention Partners have awarded MUSC with the Excellence Recognition for reaching the highest standards in worksite health and prevention. MUSC achieved the recognition by earning straight As in four modules -- Physical Activity, Nutrition, Tobacco Free and Culture of Wellness – of WorkHealthy AmericaSM, a Prevention Partners program which draws on evidence-based best practices for the workplace. The Excellence Recognition honors MUSC’s commitment to employee health as demonstrated by its policies, programs and benefits to support employee health, optimize employee productivity, and integrate wellness into daily operations.

“The Medical University of South Carolina sets a high bar in establishing a workplace where employees can make healthy choices,” says Meg Molloy, President and CEO of Prevention Partners. “I applaud this great effort and the commitment of their leadership to sustain a culture of wellness.”
