This week the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce partnered with the community to generate an interest and enthusiasm in promoting conscious good health and wellness. The state of Indiana is consistently in the top five (5) in the country of every major list when it comes to the ease of doing business, being business friendly, entrepreneurial, and one of the fastest growing business states. Where Indiana lags behind, and is constantly challenged, is in the area of health and wellness. Statistically the state ranks in the low forties as one of the least healthiest states in the country. So weeks like “Wellness Week” are so critical to a community’s success. Make no mistake about it, the health and wellness of a community is a huge economic development driver, as well as a major factor in recruiting and retaining a vibrant workforce. So all of us at the Chamber are very proud of our region for taking this challenge on, and bringing an awareness to an issue so critical to the long term success of our state. Thanks to all of those individuals who helped to make “Health and Wellness” week a huge success.
