Five years after they started, the people who run the health-minded nonprofit Live Well Winona can find evidence of their work across the city.
Watkins has made its facilities tobacco-free.
Thern has started a pre-shift stretching program for its employees.
Blooming Grounds Coffee House has added “Live Well, Eat Well” logos to its menu items that meet Live Well standards for calorie, fat and sodium content.
And that’s just to name a few. There are also new wellness programs, stronger promotion of ongoing community activities and events, and other initiatives already completed or in the works.
“That’s work that’s been very rewarding and impactful,” said Janneke Sobeck, Live Well’s community wellness director and one of its founding members. “We’ve spent a lot of time researching what will work in this community.”
